A bachelor’s degree in environmental science offers a broad approach to the natural sciences. Students typically take courses in biology, chemistry, geology, and physics. Students often take specialized courses in hydrology or waste management as part of their degree as well. Classes in environmental policy and regulation are also beneficial. Students who want to reach the . level and have a career in academia or as an environmental scientist doing basic research may find it advantageous to major in a more specific natural science such as chemistry, biology, physics, or geology, rather than a broader environmental science degree.
In each room, a monitoring station was placed at the far end of the room from the entrance to monitor additional IEQ parameters. The station included a ) a TSI SidePak AM510 personal aerosol monitor to measure PM , b ) an integrated filter sample for gravimetric analysis of PM and elemental composition, c ) an 8-hr integrated active air sample ( L/min flow rate) analyzed for 14 aldehydes by ALS Analytical Laboratories using . EPA method TO-11 ( . EPA 1999 ), d ) a passive NO 2 badge [8-hr time-weighted average; model X-595, Assay Technology; Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) method 182 ( OSHA 1991 )], e ) a passive sampling badge for O 3 [8-hr time-weighted average; model X-586, Assay Technology; OSHA Method 214 ( OSHA 2008 )], and f ) illuminance and irradiance measures using an IL1400 radiometer/powermeter with SEL-033/Y/W and SEL-033/F/W detectors. VOC, aldehyde, NO 2 , O 3 , and integrated PM samples had at least one blank and one duplicate for every 10 samples. Samples were blank-corrected for analyses. All duplicate measures were within 15% of each other, and an average of the two was used for subsequent analyses.
Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and Paramedics are at the forefront of healthcare as a first response medical provider. They will attend road traffic accidents, fires at public and private premises and emergency care to people’s homes after a fall, burn or other accident. As far as the environmental sector is concerned, they may typically be seen at chemical spill zones, gas leaks and other areas of contamination where people might need emergency medical care at the place of the accident. They work for hospitals, ambulance services, fire departments and the military.
