Welcome to the CoursePlus Web site for INDUSTRIAL HYGIENE LABORATORY (182.614.01), a course offered by the Department of Environmental Health Sciences at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
Uses laboratory and field methods and equipment to appraise occupational and environmental atmospheric conditions. Topics include grab and dynamic sampling; measurement of respirable and non-respirable particulates; particulates size analysis; fiber sampling and analysis; gas and vapor sampling and analysis by wet chemical and instrumental methods; and calibration of direct reading field survey instruments.
Upon successfully completing this course, students will be able to:
- Calibrate air sampling pumps using primary and secondary standards
- Conduct air sampling for airborne particulate matter
- Define criteria and equipment used for size-selective particulate matter sampling
- Conduct air sampling for airborne gases and vapors
- Describe adsorptive and absorptive sampling techniques
- Select appropriate analytical techniques for air sample analysis
- Conduct air sampling using direct-reading instruments
- Perform a survey for airborne contaminants
- Write a professional report for air sample survey results
