Advanced Topics in EHS: Toxicology of the Liver and Kidney (.5-day)

PDF Brochure — Course Offering: March 30, 2020

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 the toxicology of the liver and kidney are introduced in the SCHC course Toxicology for Hazard Communication.

The goal of this course is to provide participants with an understanding of the toxicology of the liver and kidney. Emphasis is placed on an understanding of the basic science of these topics and the development of the technical skills and background necessary to develop, evaluate, and apply hazard determinations, hazard classifications, and risk assessments involving chemicals or mixtures with the potential to cause adverse effects of the liver or kidney.

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
