Understanding Industrial Hygiene

Course overview

Industrial hygiene is the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, and control of hazards at work that may result in injury/illness or affect the wellbeing of workers. Industrial hygienists use strict scientific methodology and professional judgment when determining the potential for hazardous exposure risks in the workplace. Their goal is to prevent industrial disease, using the science of risk management, exposure assessment, and industrial safety.

We'll list the people a CIH works with to make their determinations, as well as discuss their process for handling hazards
