What is Industrial Hygiene?
Industrial Hygiene is the science of anticipating, identifying, evaluating and controlling occupational conditions that may adversely affect worker health and safety in workplaces. Professional practitioners who specialize in this subject are known as Industrial Hygienists. One of their major responsibilities is to anticipate, identify and solve potential health problems within industrial plants and other workplaces. The identification step requires a thorough study of the process, operating conditions and operating procedures. During the identification step, the potential hazards and methods of contact are identified and recorded.
Why should you learn Industrial Hygiene?
Industrial Hygiene is an important part of ensuring the health and safety of workers in any workplace. In many industries such as industrial chemicals, petrochemicals, oil and gas, mining & metals, pulp and paper, thermal power generation workers may be exposed to several toxic hazards that can adversely affect their health and safety and general well being. This is an important part of Process Safety Management, yet it finds only a cursory coverage in any Process Safety Course or Occupational Safety Course. Hence Abhisam decided to create a course that will help Industry professionals understand Industrial Hygiene as it applies to them.
