TUR: Toxic Use Reduction
The Midwest Consortium developed this course for workers and community members who want to investigate the reduction of use of toxic materials. Member institutions of the Midwest Consortium who worked on the update of the initial program include Green Door Initiative, University of Minnesota and the University of Cincinnati. This program was developed for use by industrial workers and community residents who seek use reduction as one approach to reducing exposures.
The Toxic Use Reduction course incorporates a variety of teaching methods to meet varied learning styles. Material presentation with discussion and small group exercises are used.
