One of the most overlooked, and often more dangerous, hazards in a workplace are invisible contaminants in the air. Our industrial hygiene department coordinates with a nationally recognized laboratory in order to provide accurate results in a reasonable time frame. Expert Fire and Safety can perform sampling for hearing conservation programs, airborne contaminant exposures, and ventilation system analysis.
Occupational noise exposure is a widely unrecognized issue in the workplace. Most companies that operate machinery or power tools will find their employees exposed to unsafe levels of noise. If left exposed, employees can suffer permanent damage to their hearing. Expert Fire and Safety can collect full shift sampling to assess the time weighted noise exposure levels employees are exposed to.
In most locations that utilize chemicals or machining processes there is also a large risk of exposure to airborne contaminants. Expert Fire and Safety has the sampling media and equipment to collect and analyze almost any contaminant that could be present in the worksite. We can also perform sampling for unknown contaminants in the worksite.
If your company utilizes ventilation equipment to help control airborne contaminants, the requirements of the system are very stringent to meet OSHA and EPA regulations. Our industrial hygiene department can perform an assessment of the system to ensure the system meets its requirements. Should the system prove to be outside the required specifications, we can provide recommendations and contacts for adapting or replacing the system.
