Industrial Hygiene Vision Statement and
Purposeall Starts with an AIHA, OSHA, and ACGIH
Occupational Exposure Assessment Model
  • Your organizations need to be devoted to the
    anticipation, recognition, evaluation, and
    control of industrial hygiene factors arising in,
    or from the workplace, which may cause sickness,
    impaired health and well-being, or significant
    discomfort among workers and team members.
  • Your organizations will need to evaluate on an
    annual basis, jobs, tasks, activities and
    products to determine the extent of employee
    exposure to hazards and decide what is needed to
    control these hazards to protect all team
  • In 1989 AIHA/ACGIH/OSHA Published a Model that
    has since been updated four times to now include
    dermal hazards.
  • The Model measures workplace hazards that can
    cause sickness, impaired health, or significant
    discomfort of workers through chemical, physical,
    ergonomic, or biological exposures. Our role as
    VPP Associates and Team Members is to identify,
    and quantify these conditions and help eliminate
    or control them through appropriate measures.
  • You will need to use workplace industrial hygiene
    monitoring and analytical methods to detect and
    quantify the extent of worker chemical, physical,
    or biological exposures and recommend
    engineering, work practice controls, and other
    methods to control potential health hazards.

Industrial Hygiene Goals and Objectives
  • Maintain Industrial Hygiene Compliance under the
    Occupational Safety and Health Administration
    (OSHA), American Conference of Governmental
    Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) and National
    Institute of Occupational Safety and Health
  • Address strictly Company Employees for initial
  • Comply with all OSHA/NIOSH/ACGIH Specific
    Standards and Regulations.
  • Monitor and Document the Quantitative 95
    Statistical Confidence that measures the extent
    of worker exposure.
  • Recommend and help employ engineering, work
    practice controls, and other methods to control
    potential health hazards.
  • Implement numerous Best Practices in the Field
    of Industrial Hygiene
  • So how do you implement all of this cost
  • By understanding the current regulatory

How do you start? By Understanding GHS
  • HCS 1983 Recognized the importance of an
    international standard in the preamble
  • Build-up to current GHS
  • Years of bilateral trade negotiations
  • 1992 United Nations mandate adopted at the Earth
  • Negotiations over 10 years
  • US supported the process and actively
  • System available for adoption by competent

What is the GHS?
  • A common, coherent approach to classifying and
    communicating chemical hazards
  • Proposes
  • Harmonized definitions of hazards
  • Specific criteria for labels
  • Harmonized format for safety data sheets

What is the GHS?
  • Sample Hazard Statements
  • Fatal if in contact with skin
  • May cause fire or explosion
  • May cause cancer
  • Two Signal Words
  • Danger
  • Warning

Use the New Law to Implement a Comprehensive
Hygiene Program
  • Conduct an Occupational Health Hazard Assessment.
    Take all SDSs
  • Scan
  • Link
  • Enter into Database
  • Document each of the following variables with
    each CAS
  • Evaluate all Chemical Hazards that exist as
    concentrations of mists, vapors, gases, fumes, or
    solids. Some are toxic through inhalation and
    some of them irritate the skin on contact some
    can be toxic by absorption through the skin or
    through ingestion, and some are corrosive to
    living tissue.
  • Need to evaluate on site every new product
    MSDSs/SDSs break down chemistry by CAS and
    percent. This Occupational Health Hazard
    Assessment update will include evaluations of all
    jobs, operations, process, task, volume on site,
    department, closed or open system, pressurized or
    not, skin contact or not, PPE worn, frequency of
    task, number of workers involved, and duration of
  • Compliance with 29 CFR 1910.1200 Hazard

Integrate Qualitative to Quantitative
  • Quantitative Measurement of Air Contaminants.
  • The most common particulate contaminants include
    dusts, fumes, mists, aerosols, and fibers. Dusts
    are solid particles that are formed or generated
    from solid organic or inorganic materials by
    reducing their size through mechanical processes
    such as crushing, grinding, drilling, abrading or
  • Fumes are formed when material from a volatilized
    solid condenses in cool air. In most cases, the
    solid particles resulting form the condensation
    react with air to form an oxide.
  • Mists are finely divided liquids suspended in the
    atmosphere. Mists are generated by liquids.
  • Fibers are solid particles whose length is
    several times greater than their diameter.
  • Gases are formless fluids that expand to occupy
    the space or enclosure in which they are confined
    (carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, carbon
  • Liquids change into vapors and mix with the
    surrounding atmosphere through evaporation.
    Vapors are the gaseous form of substances which
    are normally in the solid or liquid state at room
    temperature and pressure (paints, parts cleaning

    the on going requirements of an installed
    Database system.

Complete Data Integration
  • Integrate all your Industrial Hygiene data into
    one database system and unlock your datas full
  • This means
  • Easily share data between multiple users,
    locations and departments. Your data is always
    synchronized across your entire organization.
  • Search and find trends in your data. Data is only
    as useful as your ability to query and organize
    into a professional format.
  • Once new onsite data has been entered, a
    confirmation is required in writing from the
    designated user/manager to allow for permanent
    integration of data into database for query
