In matters of community and workplace exposure to hazardous materials, indoor air quality contaminants, and noise, our Certified Industrial Hygienist evaluates Industrial Hygiene issues such as the origin and path of exposure to these pollutants and determines if they were foreseeable and preventable.


Industrial Hygiene is defined as the art and science dedicated to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, communication and control of environmental stressors in, or arising from the work place.  These stressors may result in injury, illness, impairment, or affect the well-being of workers and members of the community. These stressors are divided into the categories of biological, chemical, physical, ergonomic and psychosocial.

Forensic industrial hygiene focuses on strict and rigorous scientific methodology in determining the hazard and evaluating exposures or risk to persons in the workplace and the community environment that have the potential to result in litigation.

In matters of community and workplace exposure to hazardous materials, indoor air quality contaminants, and noise, we evaluate the routes of exposure to these pollutants in order to determine how and why they occurred to validate or contest a claim. This is performed by evaluating workplace standard operating procedures and community/public environmental programs, identifying and reviewing personal protective equipment or lack thereof, and evaluating existing engineering controls, such as ventilation systems, chemical fume hoods, and noise protection barriers.

Anytime there is an injury or illness related to the public or workplace exposure from hazardous materials and contaminants, we can help determine the nature and cause of the exposure that produced the injury and illness based upon the evaluation and assessment of environmental and work place conditions.

Ergonomics

In the workplace, Ergonomics play a large role in employees remaining healthy.  Improper positioning of workplace items such as keyboard trays, chairs, and standing workstations can cause discomfort and physical injury over time.  We can evaluate workstations and determine if injuries were as a result of improper workplace Ergonomics.

Noise Exposure

Exposure to high levels of noise can cause permanent hearing loss which neither surgery nor a hearing aid can help correct.  An evaluation can be performed of the environment, to determine what caused hearing loss and what controls should have been used to prevent hearing loss injuries.

Safety Data Sheet

The OSHA Hazard Communication Standard requires that all manufacturers who produce hazardous chemical/materials provide a SDS for proper identification and information, from emergency releases to personal exposure and hazardous materials.  Our knowledgeable staff is able to interpret and evaluate hazardous material exposure, emergency releases, and environmental impact by SDS review.
