EHS652: Evaluation of Chemical Hazards

  • Graduate level
  • Fall term(s)
  • 3-4 Credit Hour(s)
  • Instructor(s): Zellers, Edward
  • Offered every year
  • Prerequisites: Previous or concurrent enrollment in biostatistics course
  • Description: Concepts and techniques related to the evaluation of occupational exposures to gases, vapors, and aerosols. Emphasis on operating mechanisms and practical aspects of industrial hygiene air-monitoring equipment, characterizing exposure distributions, and developing sampling strategies. Lectures, laboratory exercises, demonstrations, problems, technical reports, and reading. Primarily for students in occupational health and safety.

EHS653: Environmental Sampling and Analysis Laboratory

  • Graduate level
  • Winter term(s)
  • 1-3 Credit Hour(s)
  • Instructor(s): Zellers, Edward
  • Prerequisites: EHS 652 or permission of instructor
  • Description: Laboratory and lecture course on equipment, instrumentation, methodologies, and strategies for measuring environmental chemical and microbiological contaminants. A primary emphasis is placed on air monitoring for human exposure assessment in the workplace and general environment. Dermal, surface, soil, and water contamination measurements are also covered. Lectures, laboratories, and demonstrations. Primarily for students in environmental health sciences with interests in occupational and ambient-environmental exposure assessments for regulatory compliance and epidemiologic risk estimation.
