Industrial Hygiene

Industrial Hygiene practices
OccuHealth, Inc. provides services for Industrial Hygiene practices and standards that are designed to keep the work environment sanitary and safe for your workers and for the adjacent community.
Recognizing workplace hazards can be challenging, and implementing engineering, administrative, and personal protective equipment controls to address these hazards can be a daunting task. That is where the science of Industrial Hygiene can help. Industrial Hygiene is devoted to anticipating, recognizing, evaluating, preventing, and controlling environmental factors and stresses present in the workplace. These factors and stresses have the ability to cause sickness, impair health and well being, or cause discomfort among workers and the general public.
OHI's staff of board certified industrial hygienists can work with you to find cost effective solutions to protect your employees, increase productivity, minimize environmental impacts, and reduce business risks/interruptions. We can also integrate IH professionals into an existing EH&S department, or serve as an in-house resource when subject matter expertise is needed.
