Industrial Hygiene - Transferring Risk with Professionals

"I can look in the SKC Catalog figure out how to sample!"

Approximately 600 chemicals have OSHA permissible exposure limits (PELs), yet there are over 300,000 chemicals used in industry. Others have Occupational Exposure Limits (OEL), Threshold Limit Values (TLV), Recommended Exposure Limits (REL), Worker Environmental Exposure Limits (WEEL), International Agency on Cancer Research Classifications (IARC) and other limits set forth by manufacturers. In addition to chemicals purchased and used there are a wide variety of intermediates, by-products, end-products or waste from manufacturing processes or specific tasks that may generate these potential contaminants.

For example, in rubber processing there are complex mixtures that make up a particular rubber compound, and there may be many contaminants formed from the basic extruding and molding process while "bloom" agents form on the rubbers surface presenting additional potential exposure risk.

With so many variables and limits why take this risk?

These are just a few reasons to consider utilizing a third party industrial hygiene service:

  • Third Party sampling is viewed as unbiased by the courts
  • Third Party sampling is viewed as unbiased by your employees
  • Third Party sampling specialists remain at the sampling event during the entire time to ensure good data is acquired
  • Third Party Certified Industrial Hygienists aid in Litigation

With all this in mind, the Industrial Hygienist strives to determine all potential exposures in order to develop a sampling and control strategy that minimizes or eliminates the risk of exposure leading to adverse health effects. The IH objectives include:

  • All Potential Hazardous Exposures are Identified and Assessed
  • Employee Exposures to Regulated Chemicals Remain Below the OSHA PEL
  • Employee Exposures to Chemicals with Other Established Limits Remain Below respective limits
  • The Hierarchy of Controls are Assessed and Implemented

Saving Labor and Analytical Costs.

To determine Exposure Risk, Juler Group Industrial Hygienists utilize a systematic and reproducible Exposure Assessment strategy that provides a risk judgement for each potentially hazardous agent. The Qualitative/Quantitative Assessment Matrix (QAM) process provides "sampling" information at two stages and satisfies requirements while saving sampling labor and analysis costs. This QAM process is carried out in two steps:

  • Compliant Stage One - Perform Qualitative Assessment to determine Risk Rating
  • Compliant Stage Two - Perform Quantitative Assessment to Confirm Exposure Limits

This process satisfies regulatory requirements and helps ensure employee health is uncompromised due to potentially hazardous agents in your workplace.
