Industrial Hygiene

Industrial hygiene is the science of anticipating, recognizing, evaluating, and controlling workplace conditions that may cause workers injury or illness. Industrial hygienists use environmental monitoring and analytical methods to detect the extent of worker exposure and employ engineering, work practice controls, and other methods to control potential health hazards.

Today, nearly every employer is required to implement the elements of an industrial hygiene and safety, occupational health, or hazard communication program and to be responsive to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Act and its regulations.


A WORKSITE ANALYSIS IS AN ESSENTIAL FIRST STEP that helps an industrial hygienist determine what jobs and work stations are the sources of potential problems.

DURING THE WORKSITE ANALYSIS, the industrial hygienist measures and identifies exposures, problem tasks, and risks.

THE MOST EFFECTIVE WORKSITE ANALYSIS includes all jobs, operations, and work activities. The industrial hygienist inspects, researches, or analyzes how the particular chemicals or physical hazards at that worksite affect worker health.

IF THERE IS A HEALTH HAZARD SITUATION, the industrial hygienist recommends the appropriate corrective actions.
