Industrial Hygiene
What Is industrial Hygiene?
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), industrial hygiene is defined as the “science and art devoted to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, and control of those environmental factors or stresses arising in or from the workplace, which may cause sickness, impaired health and well-being, or significant discomfort among workers or among the citizens of the community.”

And here at Luce Air Quality, we’re committed to helping you to foster the safest and healthiest environment possible for both your employees and your customers.
Here’s how we can help using industrial hygiene:
Biological Hazards
Biological hazards include bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other living organisms that can cause acute and chronic infections. Generally speaking, they cause problems once they’ve entered the body either directly or through breaks in the skin.

If you suspect potential contamination of biological hazards in or around your worksite, we can perform a variety of assessments to provide you with answers — involving the location, source, and scope of the contamination — in addition to actional recommendations.
We offer:
  • Commercial Mold Assessments
  • Commercial Bacteria Assessments
  • Commercial Water Damage Assessments
Chemical Hazards
Chemical hazards include harmful chemical compounds in the form of solids, liquids, gases, mists, dust, and fumes. Thus, there are various ways individuals may come into contact with them.
Specifically, our team can help you to identify and monitor:
  • TO-15
  • TO-17
  • CO
  • CO2
  • And more
Physical Hazards
These include excessive levels of ionizing and nonionizing electromagnetic radiation, noise, vibration, illumination, and temperature.
  • Noise
  • Illumination
  • Temperature
Hazardous Materials & Heavy Metals
When it comes to other hazardous metals and materials — particularly in cases involving asbestos — you can never be too careful. By failing to adhere to proper protocol, you may unwittingly expose yourself, your employees, and/or your customers to these materials.

In these instances, you may also be subject to lawsuits, among other consequences.
Our team can help you stay on top of hazardous materials with the following services:
  • Asbestos Surveys
  • Asbestos Air Monitoring
  • Asbestos Project Clearance
  • Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Compliance Assessments
