Occupational Hygiene; lessons from the past and emerging risks.
Drawing from experience gained during the 50 years IOM has been operating, this seminar will look at advancements in measuring and assessing workplace health hazards over the last half century and what those hazards have included. We will go on to look at where we stand now, by considering what risks Occupational Hygienists deal with today, before moving on to emerging risks that we may be faced with in the future.
