On completion of this course, participants should be able to:
- Discuss the application of the hierarchy of control in order to minimise any potential hazardous effects arising from employee exposure to atmospheric contaminants
- Discuss the need for alterations to exposure standards where variations to an eight hour shift may occur and apply appropriate formula to determine exposure level
- Explain the possible interrelationships between two or more atmospheric contaminants, their possible effect on exposed employees and potential difficulties of measurement
- Discuss the use of the National Occupational Health and Safety Commission’s guidance note for determining the level of risk posed by hazardous substances
- Apply a systematic approach to managing hazards for a range of hazardous substances exposure scenarios in mining operations, including:
– Confined spaces
– Welding and allied processes
