MOLONEY and ASSOCIATES Acoustic and Environmental Consultants have been awarded Approved Training Provider status by the Occupational Hygiene Training Association (OHTA). The OHTA courses are internationally recognised and facilitate students to develop a career in occupational hygiene and related fields. Their courses are accredited by the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS).
The courses can be taken by people who have responsibilities in Occupational Hygiene and Health and Safety and who wish to develop their expertise.
W501 Measurement of Hazardous Substances
The course aims to:
- Provide the student with a sound understanding of the techniques for assessing exposure to hazardous substances in the workplace and with an understanding of how exposure information can be used to assess risk.
On completing this course successfully the student will be able to:
- Describe the general approach to health risk assessment, including the role of atmospheric monitoring
- Select appropriate equipment to measure specific airborne contaminants and devise a suitable sampling strategy
- Present the results in a form useful for health risk assessment purposes to enable management to comply with relevant legislation.
Successful students will receive their award from the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS).
The BOHS/OHTA training scheme is extremely flexible and allows students to study at their own pace, choosing modules that are most relevant to their interests or circumstances. While the option to ‘accumulate’ a series of 5-day courses to achieve an International Certificate is particularly useful, so too is the option to specialise and to study for a Certificate of Competence in an individual subject.
Moloney and Associates, Acoustic and Environmental Consultants, provide courses for individuals and groups to be trained to Institute of Acoustics (IOA) standards and to BOHS/OHTA international standards. We also provide bespoke training courses for clients and we can generally tailor a training course around your specific requirements. Please contact us through our website and/or by phone to discuss any of your training needs.
