Industrial Hygiene
Industrial HygieneOur industrial hygiene professionals have worked in a wide array of industrial, commercial, research, clinical, and governmental settings, building a thorough knowledge of processes, environments, and workplaces. Applied Environmental, Inc. offers over 29 years experience in evaluating occupational health hazards including the following:

  • Chemical agents (such as solvents, particulates, fumes, vapors, and acids/alkalis),
  • Biological agents (including fungal and bacterial exposures), and
  • Physical stresses (such as noise, radiation, and thermal stresses).

We provide turnkey surveys to identify employee occupational exposures  monitoring and evaluating exposure data, and recommending options for cost-effective control measures. These measures include engineering controls, administrative or management procedural changes, material substitution, personal protective equipment, and/or process modifications. We complete all industrial hygiene projects under the direct supervision of a Board Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH).

Applied Environmental maintains an extensive inventory of direct-read industrial hygiene instruments, colorimetric detector tubes, and analytical sampling equipment. Our close working relationships with numerous AIHA-accredited industrial hygiene analytical laboratories assure that we have an in-house inventory of sampling media as well as comprehensive analytical support. Our field staff is supported by laboratory experts experienced in identifying analytical sampling techniques, sampling interference, esoteric sampling parameters, and general field guidance that enhances our exposure evaluations.

Safety ComplianceApplied Environmental provides experienced health and safety professionals under the direction of a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) or Certified Safety Professional (CSP) to fully manage safety, health, and environmental programs for a facility.

Safety inspections can be targeted to specific departments or and operations, or involve a full facility assessment.

Safety program support includes:

  • Review of safety documents to determine compliance status with regulatory requirements,
  • Cost effective organization of the survey effort and selection of appropriate safety audit elements,
  • Interviews with representative personnel and walk-throughs to observe the current facility layout and operations,
  • Identification of any obvious practices that may deviate from approved procedures,
  • Check for additional elements or conditions that were not previously identified,
  • OSHA compliance training for safety supervisors and employees of the facility, and
  • Safety officer placement on-site.
