Industrial Hygiene consists of a science devoted to the prevention of occupational illness. Exposure to chemicals and other work place health hazards can lead to disease or long-term illness that may be indicative of exposure. The disease or illness may not occur until long after the exposure has stopped. Since these diseases or illnesses are a consequence of exposure to hazards present in the workplace, they are known as occupational diseases.
Industrial Hygiene practitioners use a process of exposure identification and evaluation following the established principles of anticipation, identification, evaluation, and control. The goal of the process is to find a solution that will eliminate or reduce the hazard, and then evaluate the solution to provide protection from current or further health effects.
This process is an exposure assessment focusing on the relationship between health hazards (e.g., chemical, physical, radiation, and biological agents) and people. The goal of monitoring or providing an assessment is to identify the properties of contaminants, the likely route and duration of exposure, and dose that will produce a health effect.
AAA can provide Occupational Exposure Assessments and Industrial Hygiene sampling, data analysis, and provide recommendation(s) for methods to reduce exposures such as engineering controls, work practices, or PPE.
