Risk management service in industrial hygiene and the environment

Occupational health is a discipline that requires knowledge in several specialized fields including chemistry, physics, biology, toxicology and medicine. According to the American Industrial Hygiene Association, industrial hygiene aims to be a:

Science and art devoted to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, prevention, and control of those environmental factors or stresses arising in or from the workplace which may cause sickness, impaired health and well being, or significant discomfort among workers or among citizens of the community.

This definition highlights the three main activities of occupational hygiene:

1) The identification of contaminants created and present in the workplace and the understanding of their effects on workers

2) The assessment of these contaminants by specific methods of measurement and analysis

3) The implementation of measures to control these contaminants or even eliminate them if necessary
