Industrial hygiene is a science devoted to the identification and mitigation of hazards in the workplace. These may include chemical, biological, physical and ergonomic hazards or stressors.

Industrial hygienist carry out observations and measurements, in order to identify such hazards. For example, monitoring and screening may be carried out to identify chemicals or substances of concern or radiological hazards, and the data be used for exposure assessments. This information forms the basis of a health and safety plan designed to mitigate hazards.

We have a CIH (Certified Industrial Hygienist) on staff when needed for risk assessments or complex cases.
