Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes various practical sessions and exercises. Theory learnt will be applied using our state-of-the-art simulators. This course aims to provide an introduction to the principles of toxicology, physiology and epidemiology. The course will cover the main types of harmful effects to target organs from exposure to chemical hazards at work and the hazards associated with common hazardous substances. On completing this course successfully, the participants will be able to:-. 1) Provide definitions of commonly used toxicology terms. 2) Describe the main routes by which hazardous substances can enter the body and the factors which influence their absorption, distribution, storage and elimination. 3) Describe the main sources of information on hazardous substances and processes. 4) Describe the main features of the principal target organs affected by hazardous substances at work and the factors which influence the degree of harm. 5) Describe the main routes of exposure and toxic and health effects for hazardous substances commonly encountered in the workplace. 6) Carryout basic interpretation of t he results from epidemiological studies. This course is designed to provide participants with a detailed and up-to-date overview of health effects of hazardous substances. It covers the commonly used toxicological terms; the basic principles of toxicology covering the pharmacokinetics, dose response relationship and toxicity testing; the types of combined effects as well as the general health effects comprising of carcinogenicity, sensitisers and reproductive effects; the physiology and target organs comprising of respiratory system, skin, nervous system, circulatory system, liver, kidney and reproductive system; and the epidemiology, the health effects and industrial processes. link to course overview PDF
