This is one area in life where what you don’t know can kill you. We work around hazards in the work environment every day. Maybe your concerns are related to airborne contaminants from the chemicals being used in a process or the dust from a manufacturing or construction operation. Or, possibly you have some issues with noise. Each comes with its own set of hazards.
The professionals at Optimum Results, under the direction of our Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH), can sample just about any operation. No matter if you are working with chemicals in a lab or dealing with lead or other heavy metals in scrap yards or welding operations, we are able. Utilizing standardized testing protocols, we will collect the necessary samples at your site or facility. Once collected, the samples are whisked away for analysis at an accredited* testing laboratory.
If your facilities’ hazards relate more to noise, the Optimum Results team can provide the necessary services. Noise surveys to determine hot spots in the work environment are a great starting point. Once identified, the hot spots can be further tested utilizing dosimetry over eight hour time weighted averages.
In the event that testing reveals levels over OSHA’s Permissible Exposure Limits, or PEL, Optimum is able to guide your path to compliance. Better yet, your organization may be striving for excellence in its Environmental, Safety and Health efforts. We can assist you in evaluating your workplace hazards against the American Conference on Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) Threshold Limit Values (TLV’s) for best practices. Our trained professionals are experts at establishing the various elements necessary. From compliance programs such as Hearing Conservation and Heavy Metals plans to annual audiometric testing of employees for hearing loss, we have the resources you need.
If you are curious about where you stand in relation to your workplace hazards, give us a call. The trained professionals at Optimum Results are ready to assist.
