Industrial hygiene surveys and employee exposure monitoring is essential when determining if chemical hazards are a real or potential issue. OSHA requires you to know the types of chemical hazards in your workplace, and determine if those chemicals are exceeding OSHA’s permissible exposure limits. Our consultants have worked with clients for over 20 years, conducting exposure assessments and establishing sampling strategies to determine if chemicals being used by employees should be a concern. Our monitoring includes personal and area sampling. We not only take the samples, but also work with you to interpret the results. We make recommendations to help your company work toward compliance. Onsite observations taken during monitoring provide us with an understanding of the source of exposures.
Through the use of our industrial hygiene management plan, we help you determine sampling priorities. We use NIOSH practices to review & calculate exposures to potentially hazardous chemical, physical, and biological agents. We also do noise surveys & sampling.
Our Management Plan includes:
- Defining concentrations of contaminants and changes in potential employee exposures.
- Prioritizing and controlling exposures that present unacceptable risks by methods described in A Strategy for Assessing and Managing Occupational Exposures, a publication of the American Industrial Hygiene Association.
- Documenting exposures and control efforts and communicating the results with affected employees.
