Navigating regulatory compliance issues with agencies such as OSHA, MSHA, and the U.S. EPA is time-consuming and costly. G2 bridges the compliance gap by conducting exposure assessments in the field, using expert sampling strategies, and making clear recommendations for the next logical course of action.
- Chemical Exposure Assessments: minimize and control possible chemical exposure (or contact) between chemicals and employees.
- Personal Noise Dosimetry and Facility Sound Level Surveys: Walkaround surveys and workshift sampling to define problems and create workable solutions.
- Dust and Particulates: Air quality testing and personal exposure monitoring assess exposure to gases, vapours, dusts (such as wood dust), particulates (such as crystalline silica), sprays, mists, smoke, and fumes.
- Metals: Testing for gaseous fumes (including welding fumes and hexavalent chromium) to document exposure and determine what personal protective equipment and controls are necessary.
- Hazard Identification and Safety Audits: Identifying safety hazards and lapses in safety practices and providing recommendations to enhance regulatory compliance.
- Machine Guarding and Engineering Control Evaluations: Identifying hazardous conditions, determining which hazards to remove, and how to place appropriate barriers between workers and hazards when removal is not possible.
- Basic Safety Walk-through/Audits: Walkthroughs and audits of work sites to evaluate basic health, safety, and fire hazards.
- Training for Employees and Contractors: Training specifically tailored to our clients’ needs for their employees and contractors.
- Basic Structure and Purpose of a Safety Committee: Assistance with the formation of a health and safety committee to monitor your organization.
- Incident and Accident Investigation: Investigating workplace fatalities, injuries, or illnesses to identify hazards and shortcomings in health and safety programs.
- Personal Protective Equipment Assessments: Assessments on current job tasks and PPE to make recommendations for appropriate selection.
- Job Hazard Analysis: A proactive analysis of task dangers and possible countermeasures to prevent injuries before they happen.

Industry Best Practices
Our team of team of safety and indoor environmental experts subscribe to the five basic tenets of industrial hygiene recognized as industry best practices:
- ANTICIPATION – This involves reviewing all practices and procedures and using qualitative and quantitative measurements to assess them annually. Industrial hygiene practices are actively integrated into the corporate structure.
- RECOGNITION – Recognition involves establishing a file or database and incorporating all legal requirements and recommended practices. We also rank risk operations and create an audit or assessment plan based on those rankings.
- EVALUATION – All the preparation is actively put to use as we implement the exposure assessment strategy and document hazard evaluations.
- PREVENTION – We ensure clients use effective hazard communication. The effectiveness of health and safety training becomes evident as preventative measures impact the workplace.
- CONTROL – Successful management is an ongoing process of following the hierarchy of controls and benefiting from health and safety management systems.
