What is Toxicology?

Toxicology is the study of toxins, in other words, poisons. Many industrial processes use materials that are either toxic by themselves or create materials that may be toxic (poisonous). These toxins may affect humans, plants, animals and the environment.


Why should you learn Industrial Toxicology?

Toxicology is the study of poisons. Industrial Toxicology is that branch of toxicology that deals with toxins associated with industrial processes. This is an important part of Process Safety Management, yet it finds very little coverage in any Process Safety Course. Hence Abhisam decided to create a course that will help Industry professionals understand toxicology as it applies to them.

Note that in the chemical industry and allied industries (such as Oil & Gas, petrochemicals, plastics, agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals), most materials used are toxic to some degree. There are almost no harmless substances used in these industries, we only have methods to reduce the potential harm that can be inflicted to a minimum.

Thus, Industrial Toxicology is an important part of Process Safety Management. Any industrial process has several risks associated with it. These risks may be due to the raw materials themselves being poisonous (or the intermediates in the process, or even the finished products), explosive, flammable or in other ways harmful to the environment.

In this course, we will study the toxicity mechanisms of these materials that may cause harm to not only workers inside the plant premises, but also to the general population outside, either during an accidental release or leakages while being transported or handled. If you are in any way responsible for safety of any industrial facility (including plants, storage areas, warehouses) or in charge of safety of shipping vessels or trucking, then you must be familiar with Industrial toxicology. Or you may be working for a regulatory authority or a government agency in charge of industrial safety. In all these situations this course will give you a good background in Industrial Toxicology.

Learn from a complete real life case study of a chemical product manufacturing project. In this case study we see how chemicals used in the project are analyzed & then selected for use,  based on chemical toxicity information.

The self assessment test enables you to practice before you take the associated exam to earn the certificate.

Just get this Industrial Toxicology online learning course today and for a much lesser price that you would be paying for any other course out there!

Note that it includes all the knowledge that you need to have to understand toxins in industry.

No other course (Classroom or e-learning or software or online or video or any other) includes all of these in one course!

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 Toxicology  information and get everything that you need to know.

Most likely to get a large number of toxicology related articles, but many will be related to medicine and biological toxins, not chemical ones.  Even if you do find enough material, it will take you a long time to sequence it all together in one coherent document.

Even after doing all this there is a possibility that you may not get what you really need to know from a chemical toxicology perspective.

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 Toxicology, 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.
      3.  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 will be many books on biological toxicity that may be relevant to only those working in hospitals and similar environments, not industrial facilities.
      2.  Some of these books may be outdated and obsolete.
      3.  Nobody gives you a certificate if you simply read a book!
