Occupational Hygiene and Fallout Dust Monitoring Training – Course Contents
The course has three main sections.
- Fallout dust monitoring theory
- Fallout dust monitoring practical
- Miscellaneous occupational hygiene topics. Gravimetric sampling, isokinetic sampling, ventilation, noise, illumination, ergonomics, fire and safety, and others.
The fall-out dust monitoring section of the course aims to train the trainees so that they are able to do the following.
Understand what fall-out dust monitoring achieves and what is collected. This will include discussion around the legislative requirements and will also address the possible influences of dust sensitive areas like communities, hospitals, farms, and recreational areas.
Prepare buckets, transport buckets and change buckets in the Fallout Dust Monitoring units.
Filter the bucket contents using a filter bench and using the related equipment used in the filtering process. This includes advice on how to minimise the filtering time and what can be done when samples are taking very long to filter.
Understand how to calculate the fall-out dust monitoring results in mg/m2/day and how to interpret these results.
Report writing and presentation options for the results will also be discussed.
Some computer training may also be included in the course if required.
Access to our software for processing of the fall-out dust data will also be included after the course. This can be used to simplify the data collection and report writing and will also provide a database of the fall-out dust levels over the years.
Certificates will be provided on completion of the training.
