Reproductive and Development Toxicology (0.5-day)

PDF Brochure — Course Offering: March 30, 2020

Course Description

The Advanced Topics in EHS series of courses is designed to expand on topics that are introduced in the basic SCHC courses.  The topics of reproductive and developmental toxicology are introduced in the SCHC course Toxicology for Hazard Communication.

The goal of this course is to provide an examination of reproductive and developmental toxicology.  Emphasis is placed on an understanding of normal reproductive and developmental function and how chemicals disrupt these functions. Additional topics will include how to measure and classify the adverse reproductive and developmental effects of chemicals and how to communicate these hazards.

This is an advanced course. While there are no formal prerequisites for this course, it is recommended that participants have a working knowledge of Safety Data Sheets and labels and that they have either taken the SCHC course Toxicology for Hazard Communication or that they are comfortable with the basic principles of toxicology.

Intended Audience

Hazard communication professionals looking to strengthen their understanding of reproductive and developmental toxicology and to broaden their hazard determination and risk assessment skills.

Course Fee:

$275.00 - Members $365.00 - Nonmembers
