Our next meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 16, 2016 at the Saratoga County Chamber 28 Clinton Street, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866. Our presentation will be on “Industrial Hygiene 101: Use of Industrial Hygiene Principles for Establishing a Safer Workplace” presented by John Reinemann, CIH.
This presentation will provide an overview of what an industrial hygienist (IH) is for the safety professional who might not be too familiar with the practice. It will also provide attendees with a general history of the industrial hygiene profession that developed centuries ago. We will review the primary principles associated with industrial hygiene activities: recognition, evaluation and control of occupational hazards. Industrial hygienists also work with medical professionals in support of required medical surveillance programs. We will review the role of the IH in identifying workplace illnesses and injuries from the OSHA 300 Log. This training will also discuss which OSHA Standards have medical surveillance requirements, using Biological Exposure Indices (BEI) to confirm or supplement exposure determinations and touch upon workplace diseases attributed to chemical exposures.
