This course is listed under the following fields of study:
The elementary principle of reducing the risk of illness and injury from exposure to health hazards is to reduce the risk by reducing exposure. This is accomplished by eliminating the hazard altogether. In industrial processes, this is not often reasonable. Substituting less harmful substances is more practical. Using less toxic materials and less hazardous processes requires knowledge of how chemicals react with each other and with the human body. This is where the science of toxicology can have the greatest impact: in helping prevent illness and injury. Toxicology is defined as the science of poisons, in this case chemical toxins, and their effects on the human body. Toxicology is a relatively new science, and chemical toxicology is a very new part of toxicology. The student investigates state of the art of toxicology and the harmfulness of chemicals.
