Occupational / Industrial Hygiene Services

Industrial Hygiene Services in Western Canada

Industrial Hygiene is the ability to anticipate, recognize, evaluate and control environmental factors and/or stressors that may arise in or from the workplace. Potential hazards to human health can be found in nearly every type of work environment. These hazards may cause sickness, impaired health, or significant discomfort among workers or citizens of the community. The control of health hazards is a major element of consideration. The recognition and evaluation of these hazards are, of course, essential to the process. However, developing and implementing effective control measures to either eliminate or reduce exposure to these hazards is the primary objective of the entire industrial hygiene effort.
