Industrial Hygiene Virtual Laboratory Multimedia Training Program

The Industrial Hygiene Virtual Laboratory (IHVL)* training program allows novice industrial hygiene students to independently learn many hands-on aspects of industrial hygiene and provides information on real-world industrial hygiene applications and techniques. It is conducive to student concentration on key lesson concepts and it can even be used for web-based course work. IHVL is also suitable for industrial hygienists who want to brush up on theory and technique. The first fully interactive, university tested and validated virtual laboratory in industrial hygiene, IHVL is self-paced and provides for effective learning.

* IHVL was created by Timothy J. Ryan, Ph.D., CIH, CSP, an Assistant Professor of Industrial Hygiene at Ohio University.

Sample Setup Guides: Step-By-Step Air Sampling Procedures
Each illustrated guide lists all equipment needed and provides step-by-step instructions for performing the specified task in straightforward, easy-to-read language. Ideal for classes, training, general or field reference, and setting up standard operating procedures. Each guide includes sampling instructions for various sampling techniques.

SKC Industry Sampling Guides
SKC Industry Sampling Guides are industry-specific guides that help safety and health personnel understand the chemical hazards in their work places and the methods to sample for them. Each industry-specific guide contains:

  1. A statement of the problems and contaminants
  2. Sources of further information
  3. The main chemical hazards along with where they typically exist in the industrial process, health effects, and current regulatory standards
  4. Reference to SKC Chemical Fact Files® and other publications

Chemical Fact Files ®
Provide the "how-to" of sampling for specific chemicals using NIOSH, OSHA, EPA, or ASTM methods. Each Chemical Fact File includes equipment requirements, sampling parameters, exposure limits, and sampling instructions.
