Industrial Hygiene Consulting and Air Monitoring
Industrial Hygiene is a science and art. The purpose is to anticipate, recognize, evaluate, and control environmental factors or stresses arising from the workplace. Such factors can cause sickness, impaired health, and well-being, or significant discomfort among workers or among the citizens of the community.
A worksite analysis is an essential first step that helps companies comply with the vast body of OSHA regulations governing industrial hygiene.
Certified Industrial Hygienists first identify those jobs and/or workstations that are sources of potential problems. Measurements and monitoring of air, noise, and various surfaces are taken, evaluated, and subsequently presented for appropriate corrective action.
