Industrial Hygiene

Improving your workplace

Environmental factors in the workplace can lead to injury or illness. Industrial Hygiene is the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, and control of occupational health hazards. Industrial Hygiene includes the use of environmental monitoring and data analysis to determine worker exposure to occupational hazards, which may include chemical, physical, ergonomic, or biological exposures.

Our Industrial Hygienists will recommend controls based on the testing results to reduce worker exposure to such hazards. Engineering controls are used to eliminate or isolate the hazard, work practice controls alter the manner in which a task is performed to mitigate risk, administrative controls such as adjustments to the scheduling of tasks may be used to reduce worker exposure, or Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) may be used in conjunction with other controls or when they are not feasible.
