What is Industrial Hygiene?

Industrial Hygiene is the science of anticipating, identifying, evaluating and controlling occupational conditions that may adversely affect worker health and safety in workplaces.  A Professional practitioner who specializes in this subject is known as an Industrial Hygienist. One of the major responsibilities of an Industrial Hygienist is to anticipate, identify and solve potential health problems within industrial plants and other workplaces.


Why should you learn Industrial Hygiene?

Industrial Hygiene is an important part of ensuring occupational health and safety of workers. In many industries such as industrial chemicals, petrochemicals, oil and gas, mining & metals, pulp and paper,  thermal power generation workers may be exposed to several toxic hazards that can adversely affect occupational health and safety and general well being. 

Understanding the principles and concepts of Industrial Hygiene is essential, to not only make workplaces safer, but also mandated by many laws in different countries. Professionals who are specialize in this field are known as Industrial Hygienists.

 If you are in any way responsible for safety of any industrial facility, or in charge of safety of shipping vessels or trucking or warehousing, then you must be familiar with Industrial Hygiene. Or you may be working for a regulatory authority or a government agency in charge of industrial safety or public health. In all these situations, this course will give you complete knowledge and skills about Industrial Hygiene, to help you become an Industrial Hygienist.

Real Life Case Study

Learn how to implement Industrial Hygiene in a real life case study. Explains in detail, covering all steps in the project such as

  • Studying the process, the P & ID and Standard Operating procedures
  • Anticipation, Identification and Mitigation of potential hazards
  • Carrying out Industrial Hygiene related calculations for ventilation, exposure to toxicants including dust mixtures
  • Compliance to laws and regulations including OSHA

Covers everything that you need to know as an Industrial Hygiene Professional

Learn not just the anticipation and evaluation of hazards, but also how to calculate exposures of various kinds of hazards, how to calculate the mitigation efforts needed to reduce the hazards to an acceptable level including for example, the amount of ventilation needed to extract toxic vapors from an area and what you need to do to comply with norms such as OSHA.

Can I not get this information free from elsewhere?

There is a  common myth  “Just Google it”

It is a myth that you can simply Google for Industrial Hygiene information and get everything that you need to know.

Most likely to get a large number of Industrial Hygiene related articles, videos, ebooks and other material. It will take you a long time to go through it and at the end of this whole exercise you may

      1.  Not be able to string it all together-most information on the internet is in bits and pieces (although large ones). It is not put out there as a logical construct or in any sequential manner. This is to be expected since it is all from different sources who may have different interests.
      2.  Be more confused than what you were before you started searching for it
      3. You may not be sure that whatever information you get is current (updated) and authentic. Some people simply put out their opinion and call it as fact
      4. You will not be getting any certificate for your efforts.

Plus you will spend several hours of your time doing all this for zero returns on your investment!

On the other hand, when you take this Abhisam Industrial Hygiene course, you know that

      1.  It is very carefully made, with subject matter experts in the field of Industrial Hygiene, Process Safety & Environmental science who have spent decades in the actual field.
      2. Utilizes easy graphics, animations and simulations, worked out examples and calculations to help you understand concepts real quick.
        You will also get real world templates that you can use. These are not available anywhere else.
      3. Get access to a real life Case Study, that clearly shows you how to develop an Industrial Hygiene project.
      4.  Earn a Certificate when you pass the associated exam and also get an electronic badge that can be displayed online on places such as LinkedIn. Get Noticed as an Expert!

Can I not simply buy a book? That will be much cheaper!

Of course, you could always pass this up and decide to go for  buy a book on this topic,


remember that there are some disadvantages with this approach

    1.  The first is that not a single book is available on the market, that covers all the topics that you need to know. On the other hand, there are a lot of things in every book, that you can safely skip, without missing anything.
    2.  Some of these books may be outdated and obsolete.
    3.  Nobody gives you a certificate if you simply read a book!
