The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) develops and establishes mandatory occupational safety and health requirements applicable to the more than 6 million workplaces in the U.S. OSHA relies on, among many others, industrial hygienists to evaluate jobs for potential health hazards. A worksite analysis is an essential first step that helps determine what jobs and work stations are the sources of potential problems.
Safe Job Solutions offers Industrial Hygiene (IH) and Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) services using environmental monitoring and analytical methods to detect the extent of worker exposure and employ engineering, work practice controls, and other methods to control potential health hazards. Our highly trained personnel are equipped to identify, evaluate, prioritize, and design solutions for issues related to:

What is Industrial Hygiene? "that science or art devoted to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, 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 and inefficiency among workers."
We know certain chemicals cause problems in the workplace. The issues now are: Where do they occur in the workplace? How can we best evaluate them? What are the procedures for dealing with them safely?
Air sampling, wipe, tape, vacuum swab, noise, non-ionizing radiation, sampling and other Industrial Hygiene monitoring gives you a baseline or assessment of exposure to particular hazards from start to finish.
In addition to providing sampling, we can help with the basics of exposure assessments dealing with:
· chemical risk assessment
· biological assessment
· engineering evaluation of mechanical system design criteria
· chemical or process engineering hazard assessments
