Unit I PowerPoint Presentation
Create a 10- to 15-slide PowerPoint Presentation (not counting title and reference slides) that provides an overview of industrial hygiene. You may use the textbook, the OSHA pamphlet on Industrial Hygiene, the AIHA website, and other sources as you see fit. Be sure to create a reference slide that cites all sources using APA format. Include the following information in your presentation:
· Definition/explanation of industrial hygiene
· Major U.S. industrial hygiene organizations
· Code of ethics
· Impact of federal regulations
· Types of hazards addressed by industrial hygienists
· Types of control methods used by industrial hygienists
· Role industrial hygiene plays in an injury and illness prevention program
Use the notes section within PowerPoint to create the dialog or script that you would use when speaking to the audience about the information presented on your slide. Your PowerPoint presentation should be constructed using a serif type font. A serif type font is, in principle (for high-resolution media), easier to read than a non-serif type font because the individual characters differ more from each other. The standard is Times New Roman. Do not use a sans serif font such as Arial. Also, it is recommended that PowerPoint presentation slides should not contain a font smaller than thirty points; twenty eight points should be the absolute minimum.

10 PowerPoint Tips
Projected slides are a good medium for depicting an idea graphically or providing an overview. They are a poor medium for detail and reading. Avoid paragraphs, quotations and even complete sentences. Limit your slides to five lines of text and use words and phrases to make your points. The audience will be able to digest and retain key points more easily. Don’t use your slides as speaker’s notes or to simply project an outline of your presentation.
Your speaker notes should be used as your talking points to remind you what information you want to convey to the audience while a particular slide is up.
