Industrial Hygiene Exposure Assessment Services
Anticipate & Recognize
Workers can be exposed to a wide range of physical, chemical and biological hazards that can threaten their health and well being. In addition, these agents can also go unrecognized by even the most trained safety professional. As a result, we have an experienced, certified and highly trained team of industrial hygiene professionals onsite. Of course, we are devoted to ensuring that your employees are protected from hazards that may arise from their daily work activities. Furthermore, we have the knowledge, skills and dedication to identify workplace exposure hazards and assess the risks involved.

- Crystalline Silica
- Temperature extremes

Evaluation & Control
Once the hazards have been identified and the risks assessed, our industrial hygienists will implement a plan to evaluate the hazards by means of exposure assessment monitoring of the physical, chemical or biological agents. In addition, the evaluation will characterize worker exposures, identify contaminant exposure pathways, and identify the need for control options. Also, control options range from elimination, substitution, engineering, administrative and personal protective equipment.
