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 work place that may result in injury, illness, impairment, or affect the wellbeing of workers and members of the community.

If you have an indoor air quality issue in the building you work in, or you have an issue with the way your workstation is set up, both of these situations fall within the realm of industrial hygiene.

What is an Industrial Hygienist?

An Industrial Hygienist is a person who is professionally qualified by education, training, and/or experience to anticipate, recognize, evaluate and develop controls for occupational health hazards and environmental issues.
