Industrial Hygiene and Air/Noise Monitoring
Industrial Hygiene is that science and art devoted to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation and control of those environmental factors or stresses arising in of from the workplace, which may 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 work stations 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.
Examples of Industrial Hygiene Related Evaluations:
