What is Industrial Hygiene?
OSHA’s Office of Training and Education defines industrial hygiene as “that science and art devoted to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, and control of those environmental factors or stresses arising in or from the workplace, which may cause sickness, impaired health and well-being, or significant discomfort among workers or among the citizens of the community.”
Upon an initial site visit or property condition assessment, industrial hygienists use air quality monitoring, field sampling and testing, laboratory testing, and analytical assessments to determine if any hazards are present and calculate the extent of potential worker exposures. Following the results Industrial Hygienists consult with the building owner or property manager to employ remediation efforts, building system solutions, procedural controls and additional facilities training to mitigate or eliminate risk.
Why is Industrial Hygiene Important?
Industrial hygiene is critically important in ensuring a safe, healthy, and comfortable building environment. Thorough industrial hygiene services including inspections, testing, remediation, and control measures protect your employee’s health and wellbeing, improve productivity, ensure regulatory compliance, reduce liability and insurance costs, and safeguard the surrounding community.
