Emphasis is placed on the science and various methodologies used for establishing occupational exposure limits as well as the appropriate uses of occupational exposure limits in hazard communication. The goal of this course is to provide participants with an understanding of the technical aspects of occupational exposure limits as well as an appreciation of their global role in hazard communication.

This is an advanced course. While there are no formal prerequisites for this course, it is recommended that participants have taken the SCHC course Toxicology for Hazard Communication or be comfortable with the basic principles of toxicology.
