Occupational Health Engineering
This course examines occupational health problems encountered in industry; particularly those due to dusts, gases, ionizing and non-ionizing radiation, noise, heat stress and vibration. Methods of establishing safe threshold limit values for these human stressors and determining degree of compliance through measurement and engineering controls are investigated. The tripartite system established between worker, management and government to ensure a safe work environment is explored. PREREQ: CHMI 1006 or CHMI 1041 or equivalent. (lec 3, lab 1.5) cr 3.
