The "Science of Safety" also known as toxicology is a critical topic for Occupational Health and Safety Professionals to understand. Information and knowledge about toxicology help OHS professionals put safety programs and policies in place to limit workers' exposure to toxic substances. These programs and policies prevent and reduce the likelihood that a disease or other negative outcome will affect the community around them. Understanding the fundamentals of toxicology can help you anticipate the potential for exposure, recognize routes of exposure, and signs and symptoms of exposure while helping you to take steps to prevent exposure. These concepts are a major component found on OSH certification exams too!

This self-paced PDC will give you basic toxicology terminology, help you understand how to interpret reports, and allow you to describe the various types of toxicological interactions.
