Industrial hygiene is a science that involves anticipating, recognizing, evaluating, and controlling hazards in the workplace that could harm employees.
Employees want to return home from work each day just as healthy as when they left. They also want to keep their loved ones safe from any harmful substances they work with on the job. The best way to maintain employee health and safety is to prevent hazardous conditions from arising in the workplace. This helps employees keep their loved ones safe, in turn.
At a minimum, hygienists must get a bachelor’s degree in a relevant field of study. Then, they must do on-the-job training and get certified through the American Board of Industrial Hygiene. Beyond that, hygienists have to stay up to date on all their certifications. To further advance their career, they may consider getting a master’s degree in a relevant field of study.
The main focus is to preserve employee health and safety in the workplace. The goal is to eliminate any work-related injuries or illnesses. Hygienists accomplish this through identifying hazards recommending safer work practices.
The principles include anticipating, recognizing, evaluating, and controlling hazards to employee health and safety.
The main categorizations of hazards that hygienists pay attention to are air contaminants, chemical hazards, physical hazards, biological hazards, and ergonomics hazards. Some hygienists may observe other factors as well, such as mental health, distractions, and physical health.
