Industrial Hygiene is the art and science devoted to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, and control of environmental stresses arising in the workplace. These stresses may be of chemical, physical, ergonomic, or biological origin. Industrial Hygiene includes protecting the health of employees, as well as the health of those in the community, by sampling and monitoring for exposure to hazardous substances or activities arising in or from the workplace. Analytical methods and risk assessment procedures are used to detect the extent of exposure. The goal of Industrial Hygiene is to find alternative methods to reduce or eliminate these health hazards.
