INDUSTRIAL HYGIENE

INDUSTRIAL HYGIENE SERVICES

OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH SERVICES

 


An industrial hygiene assessment is useful to confirm suspect low exposures to hazardous materials, to determine adequacy of exposure controls, to establish an exposure baseline, to comply with OSHA routine exposure requirements, and to determine exposure compliance with that which management has established as an in-house acceptable exposure level. Omega Environmental Consulting seeks to creatively design exposure controls in order to control costs.
