Health and Safety FAQs
What is Industrial Hygiene?
Industrial hygiene is generally defined as the art and science dedicated to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, communication, and control of environmental stressors in, or arising from, the workplace that may result in injury, illness, impairment, or affect the well-being of workers and members of the community. G2 offers industrial hygiene consulting services to businesses in the Chicago, IL region and beyond.
What questions should I ask when I am looking for a Certified Industrial Hygienist?
Here are several questions you should ask an industrial hygiene consultant:
- How many years of experience do you have?
We recommend working with certified safety professionals (CSPs) who have at least 5 years of experience.
- What are your certifications? Where did you get certified?
A certified industrial hygiene consultant will be best equipped to address your concerns.
- Are samples sent to an independent lab?
An unbiased and accurate assessment of the problem is important. Sending samples to independent labs can remove potential bias issues.
Why is it important to perform industrial hygiene sampling?
Industrial hygiene sampling is an important step in reducing the risk of impaired health from inhaling, ingesting or absorbing toxic chemicals. G2’s Chicago-based certified industrial hygiene consultants conduct chemical sampling and analysis to assess workplace contaminants and associated worker exposures.
Our experienced team takes an individual approach to industrial hygiene sampling so we can better meet our client’s unique needs.
Do you provide COVID-19 Sampling and Testing?
G2 is now able to provide COVID-19 testing for “high-traffic” areas and touchpoints around your facility. We sample and test for the presence of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the disease known as COVID-19. Our testing helps provide reassurance that frequently-touched surfaces like doorknobs, faucet handles, keyboards and other high-traffic areas are reasonably free from the presence of SARS-CoV-2.
Do you offer building or facility start-up services after closures due to COVID-19?
G2’s consulting services can provide a thorough inspection of all building systems before your building is officially opened, along with a report of any potential risks to your employees’ health.
This comprehensive report also includes recommendations for how to quickly address issues with industry best practices.
What type of COVID-19 Employee Safety Programs do you offer?
G2 offers Covid-19 industrial hygiene training programs that can educate employees on key safety practices and the proper use of equipment to give your workforce the tools they need to maximize safety in the workplace.
What is Indoor Environmental Testing?
Environmental testing assesses chemical, biological and physical factors that affect the health and safety of people in workplaces, homes and buildings. Our Chicago, IL-based consultants analyze indoor environmental factors to help us assist our clients with all health and safety endeavors.
Results from indoor environmental inspection and testing can act as guideposts along the route to the safest, healthiest environment possible.
Where is Lead Used Today?
In the United States, lead is used for automobile lead-acid storage batteries, ammunition, pipes, cable coverings, building materials, pipe fittings, radiation shielding, collapsible tubes and fishing weights. Lead is also used in ceramic glazes and as a stabilizer in plastics.
Our consultants can provide lead testing services if you have any concerns about the presence of lead in your building or facility.
What is Mold?
Molds are simple, microscopic organisms, present virtually everywhere, indoors and outdoors. Because they grow by digesting organic material, they gradually destroy whatever they grow on. If not remediated, mold can also potentially cause a host of health issues. Our certified consultants are available to provide mold testing services to the Chicago, Illinois region and nationwide.
What is Radon?
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer. You can’t see or smell radon. It easily penetrates common household and building materials, such as low-density plastic (e.g. plastic bags), most paints, sheetrock, concrete block, mortar, wood paneling, and most insulations. It is usually found in igneous rock, soil, and well-water.
G2’s certified radon testing experts can easily provide radon testing services for your workplace or school.
Where Might I Find Asbestos?
Asbestos can most commonly be found in buildings, but also in gas heaters, hairdryers, some clothing, and automotive brakes.
G2 provides asbestos testing services in the Chicago, IL region as well as nationwide. Contact us if you are concerned your building is at risk for having asbestos.
What is the Importance of Water Testing services?
Water is the most vitally important resource we have. It is the object of numerous environmental laws and regulations–not only for drinking water, but for the whole water cycle, from surface water to groundwater and wastewater processes. G2 provides a wide range of water testing services, including physical, chemical and microbiological testing.
Why Test for Chemicals?
Companies seek chemical analyses for a wide variety of reasons. These analyses may be routine chemical tests for quality control, or conducted for quality assurance purposes.
At G2, our chemical testing services are customized according to each individual project’s needs. We use multiple methods of analysis when testing chemicals and raw materials.
Risk Management Consulting
What is Risk Management?
Under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (WHS Act), persons conducting a business or undertaking have a primary duty to manage risks to health and safety by eliminating them as much as is reasonably practicable. The responsibility extends to all companies under the WHS Act, as well as employers, contractors and suppliers of substances or structures used for work.
G2’s safety, environmental and engineering experts can skillfully plan your enterprise risk management strategies from start to finish.
Why do I Need a Risk Assessment?
Most company owners don’t realize the high cost of employee accidents and injuries. Legally, the company is responsible for paying the injured employee’s medical bills and compensation for lost work, but it’s the “hidden” costs that really take a toll on a company’s finances.
G2 offers comprehensive risk assessment services in the Chicago, IL area and beyond.
