Industrial or occupational hygiene is dedicated to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation and control of environmental factors arising in or from the workplace that may result in injury, illness, impairment or affect the well-being of workers and members of the community.

Workplace health hazards are broadly covered under:

  • Chemical: gases, vapors, dusts, fumes
  • Physical: noise, vibration, temperature, radiation
  • Biological: bacteria , fungi, virus, insects
  • Ergonomics: stress, workload, work organizations

An industrial hygiene survey and evaluation is useful for organizations to:

  • Identify and quantify specific contaminants that may be present in the work environment.
  • Assess compliance with respect to various occupational health standards.
  • Determine exposure in response to complaints.
  • Generate environmental data in conjunction with an interface with medical and/or epidemiological efforts.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of engineering controls.
