Keeping Employees Safe: Industrial Hygiene Assessment for Semiconductor Facility

Whether a hazardous chemical in the workplace is inhaled, touched, or swallowed, it has the potential to negatively impact the health and productivity of your employees. Common side effects of chemical exposure include headaches, skin rashes, kidney or liver disorders, and chemical burns.

To keep your workplace safe and your workforce healthy, G2 offers an industrial hygiene assessment that can identify if any hazardous conditions exist. A semiconductor fabrication facility requested one such assessment to address concerns about their employees’ exposure to cleaning chemicals during routine maintenance procedures.

G2’s clients operate in a wide variety of industries and settings, some of which involve a greater potential for chemical exposures. The semiconductor fabrication industry uses dry and wet etching processes, and part of these processes includes removing residue with special chemicals.

A G2 industrial hygiene assessment is performed by a certified industrial hygienist who is equipped to design solutions that comply with health and safety standards and minimize and control possible chemical exposure.

For the semiconductor fabrication facility, the goal was to ensure the chemical levels were below the limits set by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists and the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health.

Every industrial hygiene assessment performed by G2 comes with a detailed analysis of the conditions presented and actionable next steps. Establishing and executing health and safety procedures protects both your business and your employees. By having them in place, your business can save money and your workforce can be more productive, safe, and healthy.
