This course is self enrollment and self paced. The lecture has embedded multiple attempt knowledge checks.  Passing score is 70%.

The purpose of this course is to provide a basic awareness of the different welding processes Occupational Health and Safety Professionals might encounter when inspecting/surveying worksites. Lessons provide explanations of basic welding terms, descriptions of different welding and cutting processes, a summary of hazards, illustrations of control measures, lists of applicable OSHA and other standards, and descriptions of sampling methods.

Terminal Learning Objectives:
TLO1. Demonstrate knowledge of how to use the DoD 8-Step Exposure Assessment Model to evaluate work-place environments for potential occupational health hazards. Stressors include but are not limited to confined space entry, spray painting, firing ranges, medical treatment facilities, welding, metal-working, foundries and general indoor environmental issues.
TLO2. Demonstrate knowledge of stressors to include but are not limited to confined space entry, spray painting, firing ranges, medical treatment facilities, welding, metal-working, foundries and general indoor environmental issues.

After completing this training, the student will be able to:
1.   Demonstrate knowledge of stressors by recognizing common types of welding processes and equipment.

2.   Demonstrate knowledge of stressors by recognizing hazards associated with welding processes.

3.   Demonstrate knowledge of how to use the DoD 8-Step Exposure Assessment Model Basic Characterization Step by recognizing commonly found controls.

4.   Demonstrate knowledge of how to use the DoD 8-Step Exposure Assessment Model Basic Characterization Step by stating the applicable OSHA and other standards. 

5.   Demonstrate knowledge of how to use the DoD 8-Step Exposure Assessment Model Characterize Exposures Step by describing typical evaluation techniques (sampling and workplace monitoring plans).

6.   Demonstrate knowledge of how to use the DoD 8-Step Exposure Assessment Model Reporting/Recording Step by describing typical findings and recommendations (controls and medical surveillance).

7.   Demonstrate knowledge of how to use the DoD 8-Step Exposure Assessment Model Reporting/Recording Step by describing how this data is entered/tracked using DOEHRS-IH.
