You will learn about chemical, physical and biological hazards in the workplace and the factors that may lead to identification of harmful risks. These are based on estimation models, measurement strategies and methods. In addition, examination of data to relevant legislation and standards, including limits, will be looked at. You will formulate recommendations for control measures to prevent or minimise exposure, use of personal protective equipment and information and training of workers.
