Overview of Basic Principles of Occupational Hygiene
W201 Basic Principles of Occupational Hygiene (BPOH) Training Course is an internationally recognised five-day foundation course that outlines extensive principles of Occupational Hygiene as the basis for anticipation, recognition, evaluation, and control of hazards that can be encountered in the workplace.
Should you be based in mining, manufacturing or construction – this can be helpful in gaining an understanding of some of the current focus airborne contaminants such as respirable crystalline silica and coal dust.
If you are in another industry this course will also be beneficial to you, as it broadly covers the basics of Occupational Hygiene which can be applied to any workplace.
