Workplace & OSHA Compliance Assessments
On-site Workplace Inspections.
Targeted or general workplace inspections, audits, or "walk-throughs" can be a valuable tool to establish baseline and periodic assessment of health and safety programs and culture. Assessments routinely include review of written programs, work practices, and environments for compliance to Occupational Safety & Health Act (OSHA) standards, and their implementation and effectiveness throughout the facility. Assessments of individual work environments or work tasks can also be completed as part of targeted assessments.
Industrial Hygiene Monitoring/Exposure assessments.
Monitoring or sampling of area environments, surfaces, or breathing zones of employees are done to characterize the potential exposure levels of chemical or physical agents. These exposure assessments may include direct-reading measurements, as well as full shift or short-term sampling in which the agent in question is collected and/or analyzed. To insure proper sample integrity and accuracy, laboratories that are accredited by the American Industrial Hygiene.
Association (AIHA) will be used when analysis is required. Observations of operations, discussions with employees, and analysis of business and regulatory requirements are commonly used to establish the conditions of the monitoring. Based on exposure results and conditions, reports and specific recommendations for exposure control may be developed.
