      Surveys from business and organizational executives confirm that employers want strong leadership and communication skills in their EHS professionals in addition to sound technical/scientific attributes. Understanding key principles for building leadership skills and teamwork are what make the difference in achieving organizational and individual success.

       

      This PDC will focus on strengthening leadership skills and attributes critical to leading teams, programs and business. The course content and interactive elements are based on concepts from the AIHA “Future Leaders Institute (FLI)” and the top rated “Functional Leadership” PDC.  The integrated workshops will focus on understanding personality styles and the basics of teamwork critical to increasing the leadership, communications and organizational alignment skills of the EHS professional at any point in their career. The skills illustrated in presentations, group discussion and workshops are critical to optimize individual effectiveness and being a valued member of your enterprise.

      Experiences shared by individuals throughout presentations and during workshops play an integral part of learning necessary to make good things happen in today’s demanding and complex work environment.

    •             1300 - 1700                 PDC 3 : Exposure Risk Assessment – Practical Tools

                    (Half Day)                                Hands-on Workshop

      Dr. Perry W. Logan, Ph.D., CIH

      Industrial Hygienists are trained in the field of “exposure science” to utilize skills that can be considered a mixture of science and art to anticipate, recognize, evaluate and control workplace hazards.  Accurate exposure assessments by Industrial Hygienists are one of the most critical elements to ensuring that hazardous exposures are properly controlled so workers and community members are adequately protected.  There are many tools now available that can systematically increase the accuracy of exposure risk assessments and ultimately decide whether exposure controls are properly identified.  This is critical since exposure assessments are also used to provide exposure input for epidemiological studies investigating the prevalence of disease related to occupational and environmental exposure of disease agents within a population.  Tools used in this workshop will help participants for given scenarios accurately define the exposure for a single person or group of people over the time frame of interest.

       

      This workshop will provide freely available tools that have been demonstrated in peer reviewed journals to increase exposure judgment accuracy and reduce biases that lead to better protection of workers and communities.  Participants will use these tools in a workshop setting on actual exposure scenarios.  Laptop computers are highly recommended to obtain the full value of this PDC.

      Work-related musculo-skeletal disorders (WRMSD) due to manual handling & awkward posture is one of the increasing occupational illnesses, reported in Malaysia, and globally. While the impact to affected workers is significant, such that it impairs their personal lifestyle and working conditions, the chronic nature of the illnesses and lack of awareness on the subject, reduces both employers and employees' buy-in on this program.

       

      This PDC aims to raise the awareness on the subject and provide guidance on assessment techniques to quantify risks associated with manual handling & awkward posture, in order for management to make necessary changes to working environment. It will also provide practical examples on control measures to reduce the risks. This interactive Workshop is definitely a must to attend in session to manage the ever-increasing WRMSD.

    •             1300 - 1700                 PDC 5 : Ethics in Industrial Hygiene

      This PDC aims at examining professional ethics for the occupational hygiene profession, and for individual occupational health practitioners. Professionals from varied fields strive to maintain professionalism in all their varied activities; occupational health practitioners are no different.  As the occupational hygiene profession matures, competence and ethical conduct is obligatory.

      The rights and responsibilities of the occupational hygienist will be discussed from the perspective of the professional practice and morality; and the relationship between the occupational hygienist and the client.

      As the occupational hygiene practice grows in leaps and bounds in the East, the applicability of the professional code of ethics which was developed in the West will be reviewed from a cultural perspective.  Common ethical issues and challenges that may be encountered by occupational hygienists will be discussed along with the decision making process required to resolve ethical dilemmas.

       

      This course is  requirement for those intending to attain their Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) under the Americal Board of IH as well as Certified Professional Industrial Hygienist (CPIH) for Malaysia.
