Industrial hygiene is the science of anticipating, recognizing, evaluating, and controlling workplace conditions that may cause workers’ injury or illness. Industrial hygienists use environmental monitoring and analytical methods to detect the extent of worker exposure and employ engineering, work practice controls, and other methods to control potential health hazards.
Noise, or unwanted sound, is one of the most widespread occupational health problems. Thousands of workers every year suffer from preventable hearing loss from exposure to high workplace noise levels.
ECOthink can estimate or measure the magnitude, frequency and duration of exposure to an agent, along with the number and characteristics of the population exposed. We will evaluate the sources, pathways, routes, and the uncertainties in the assessment.
Expert witnesses can assist with contentious cases by providing expert witness testimony regarding industrial hygiene, safety and environmental issues.
Personal or area air monitoring may need to be conducted for a variety of reasons including compliance, exposure assessment, evaluation of controls, etc.
Health and Safety Management Programs
The main goal of safety and health programs is to prevent workplace injuries, illnesses, and deaths, as well as the suffering and financial hardship these events can cause for workers, their families, and employers.
Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ)
People spend around 90% of their time indoors. Indoor air pollutants include: VOCs, Particulate, Mold and ETS. ECOthink can evaluate and improve the IEQ in your office or residence.
Infection Prevention and Control
Infection prevention and control (IPC) is a practical, evidence-based approach which prevents patients and health workers from being harmed by avoidable infections. Preventing health care-associated infections (HAI) can prevent deaths, save money, reduce the spread of antimicrobial resistance.
ECOthink can develop and implement a wide range of COVID-19 safety programs including employee training and formal plans to prevent and control the transmission of Corona virus.
The OSHA Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) recognizes employers and workers who have implemented effective safety and health management systems and maintain injury and illness rates below national Bureau of Labor Statistics averages for their respective industries.
