It has two parts: phase 1 is online and phase 2 is hands on training. It is for industrial hygiene staff members who will be actively entering data into the DOEHRS-IH application at an Industrial Hygiene Program Office. Upon completion of this phase 1 online course, students will automatically be placed in the queue for phase 2 hands on training. This course is not for individuals who have previously been through this training, or individuals who will not be actively entering data into the application. Please make note that 1.5 days of this course is online in Blackboard and registrants must complete the online portion of this course or they will not be provided a quota for the phase 2 face to face training.

CLASS MATERIALS:

Phase 1-Students will need speakers or headphones to hear the audio. Slide Deck notes pages will be available on Blackboard. Students may wish to print handouts and have them available during the videos. Phase 2-Students are responsible for printing all classroom scenarios and bringing with them to the face to face portion of the course. Bring materials to take notes (pens, pencils, highlighter, self-stick tabs, etc.)

At the end of the course, IH professionals will be able to:
1. Describe and differentiate between the 8
steps of the DoD IH Exposure Assessment Model via a web-based IH Information Management System, which consist of the following elements:



Define Scope of Support & Resources

Conduct Basic Characterization

Establish Similar Exposure Groups

Develop Workplace Monitoring Plan

Characterize Exposures

Assess Exposures & Recommend Controls

Generate selected Reports

Conduct relevant Re-evaluations



2. Enter and analyze data generated in the demonstration model of the DOEHRS Information Management System.

3. Set up their local Industrial Hygiene Program Office in the production (live) model of the DOEHRS Information Management System. This will allow the students to begin entering exposure data upon their return to their work sites.

4. Explain how Industrial Hygiene tasks (surveys, sampling, interviews) are entered into the portable tablet computers.
