Current topics in industrial hygiene and safety are presented to provide practicing health and safety professionals with updates on new and emerging topics in the field. The course consists of weekly meetings that include discussions of the topic, Internet exercises to research new articles and case studies. Students are expected to conduct mini literature reviews of the topic and to participate in the discussion of their research or experience. Emphasis will be placed on the application of findings to health and safety programs. Nine topics of current interest will be selected each year. Examples include: ergonomics issues, indoor air quality, cumulative traumas, process safety, traffic and transportation safety, confined space, regulatory compliance, risk assessment, and blood-borne pathogens. (OHSM required, possible elective for other programs). Topics that are relevant to Disaster Management issues are included in the context of industrial safety and hygiene.
