The health of your workforce is a vital constant in today’s working environment. Increasing costs and a constant barrage of changing information can make maintaining a safe and healthy workplace difficult.
Hazard assessments of the operations and tasks your workers perform are a necessity and an OSHA requirement. Simply providing hearing protection or a respirator, without fully understanding the actual level of protection needed, can place your workers in harms way, increase costs and may be the basis for worker complaints leading to problems with OSHA.
By using the services of an industrial hygienist, the level of occupational exposure to physical and chemical hazards in the workplace can be measured and documented. It will give you the information and tools needed to provide the right level of protection for your employees and ensure your compliance with federal standards.
