*Cough* *Cough* What’s that smell? What am I breathing in? Industrial Hygiene is the science and art of anticipating, recognizing, evaluating, and controlling environmental factors or stresses arising from the workplace. In this 3-hour workshop, we will dive into the world of air quality, go over the basic principles, regulatory and industry practices, as well as common air quality hazards in manufacturing environments. At the end of this session, you will have an understanding on the basics on air quality and be able to identify when it’s time to call a specialist to step in and evaluate the air quality in your facility.
