Industrial hygiene is the science of anticipating, recognizing, evaluating, and controlling workplace conditions that may cause worker’s injury or illness. Industrial hygienists use environmental monitoring and analytical methods to detect the extent of worker exposure and employ engineering controls, work practice controls, and administrative controls to reduce potential health hazards. Various hazards present in a workplace can include air contaminants, chemical hazards, biological hazards, physical hazards, and ergonomic hazards.
Employers that invest in workplace safety and health can expect to reduce fatalities, injuries, and illnesses. This investment typically results in cost savings in a variety of areas, such as lowering worker’s compensation costs and medical expenses, avoiding OSHA penalties, reducing the cost to train replacement employees and conduct accident investigations, and reduced employee sick days. In addition, employers often discover that changes made to improve workplace safety and health can result in significant improvements to their organization’s productivity and financial performance, and can also result in increased employee morale.
