Chemical Hygiene Surveys and Compliance Audits
Toxic chemicals and harmful emissions from the manufacturing process are just a few of the hazards that can endanger unprotected employees in today’s workforce. Identifying these potential hazards through air monitoring and other environmental sampling techniques is a key step to ultimately determining the severity of potential exposures and implementing effective employee protection strategies.
EI’s staff of Certified Industrial Hygienists (CIH) and Certified Safety Professionals (CSP) use NIOSH/OSHA approved sampling methodologies to help you identify these risks and develop appropriate engineering controls and personal protection plans.
- EI conducts employee exposure monitoring and chemical hygiene surveys. The results of any sampling are compared with either established occupational exposure limits (i.e. OSHA Permissible Exposure Limits (PELs) and ACGIH Threshold Limit Values (TLVs) or industry occupational exposure limits (OELs).
- We provide best practice recommendations and can support you firm in their implementation and follow up evaluation.
- All sample analysis is performed by American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) accredited laboratories. The use of accredited labs establishes high standards of performance that promotes the production of quality data for use in evaluating exposures that impact public health, the environment and natural resources.
EI is dedicated to providing our clients with professional services according to the American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH) Canons of Ethical Conduct.
DO YOU HAVE POTENTIAL EXPOSURE CONCERNS?
These reports are simply the best laid out and easy to read reports I’ve ever received. I could hand these to my operations teams without having to “translate” them. These are very helpful.Jarrett Robinson
