Let's take a peek behind the curtain of one of our practitioner specialties--industrial hygiene. Read on for an interview with one of Antea Group's experienced pros.

What is Industrial Hygiene?

Industrial hygiene is a science and art devoted to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, prevention, and control of those environmental factors or stresses arising in or from the workplace which may cause sickness, impaired health and well-being, or significant discomfort among workers or among citizens of the community.

What is an Industrial Hygienist?

An industrial hygienist is someone who is specially trained to anticipate, recognize, evaluate, and control hazards that workers may encounter in the workplace. Based on the hazards or potential hazards that might be present, industrial hygienists can recommend administrative or engineering systems to control these hazards or can help the employer evaluate what type of personal protective equipment might be needed to do the job that needs to be performed.
