Industrial Hygiene

Industrial Hygiene

Due to advances in chemical development, the need for faster production, the requirement for better quality, and the desire for ever-decreasing operating costs, today’s workplaces introduce many environmental hazards. These hazards, if not analyzed and controlled, could lead to significant worker illnesses. Illnesses affect productivity, increase operating costs, and erode employee morale. Noise, air quality, chemical use, hazardous waste creation and storage, and ergonomic risk factors are some of the hazards present in workplace environments.
