OSHA/MSHA Consulting

Chemistry & Industrial Hygiene, Inc. has the experience and qualifications to help clients respond to OSHA citations and to implement programs and training to avoid repeat violations. Depending on the needs of our client and their specific situation, we provide customized approaches designed to achieve regulatory compliance, protect the workforce, and meet target budgets.

OSHA Audit

Our staff performs comprehensive health hazard evaluations to identify industry-specific health and safety risks that may pose a threat to workers and violate regulatory requirements. This process includes interviewing key personnel to identify existing industrial hygiene, safety, and environmental concerns. In the context of personnel interviews, work practices and procedures are reviewed against existing program and regulatory requirements. If available, C&IH reviews current occupational and environmental health and safety program documents including past air sampling data, communication from regulatory agencies, and relevant program elements that directly impact employee health and corporate compliance. Based on our industrial hygiene, environmental, or OSHA audit findings, C&IH develops appropriate program and training to assist our clients in meeting their health and safety goals.
