Learning outcomes

The module proposes the acquisition by the students of the methods of analysis, estimation and risk assessment, highlighting critical issues and knowledge regarding the fulfillment of the risk assessment and its specific chapters.
At the end of the teaching module the student must have acquired the specific knowledge on how to carry out the assessment of risks from physical agents, in particular with regard to the microclimate in the workplace. He must be able to apply the principles and methods taking into account the indications deriving from Annexes IV and VIII of Legislative Decree 81/08 and subsequent amendments. as well as the methods provided by the standards of good technique (UNI EN). In-depth studies concern the harsh environments, the instrumentation to be used, the study of specific cases, the analysis of the causes that led to problems and possible solutions.
