W501 - Measurement of Hazardous Substances


W501 Measurement of Hazardous Substances (including Risk Assessment).

The W501 course is a 5 day taught programme including a practical assessment during the course and a professional examination on the final day.

The course is highly interactive including practical excercises and case studies. We restrict the numbers of students on each course so as to provide individual attention to the delegates.

It is one of the Core Modules for the International Hygiene Certificate



(Including Risk Assessment)

Aim: To provide the student with a sound understanding of the techniques for assessing

exposure to hazardous substances in the workplace and with an understanding of how

exposure information can be used to assess risk.

On successful completion of this module the student will be able to:

- describe the general approach to health risk assessment, including the role of

atmospheric monitoring;

- select appropriate equipment to measure specific airborne contaminants and devise a

suitable sampling strategy;

-  present the results in a form useful for health risk assessment purposes to enable management to comply with relevant legislation.
