Goal of the Module

This Module provides trainees with background information on how exposure to workplace hazards can affect a worker's body and therefore his or her health. Topics discussed are: how hazardous agents can enter the body; local, systemic, acute and chronic effects; and the role of the health and safety representative in creating a safe and healthy workplace.
