With so many variables across workplaces, thorough assessment requires the Industrial Hygiene professional to exercise judgment in assessment design and approach, which is why the right Industrial Hygienist is critical to impactful site assessments.

In worksite assessments, an Industrial Hygienist will measure exposure levels, analyze risks, sample air and work surfaces, and perform any other specific tests for that location. An ideal analysis, like those conducted by SITEX, includes testing or observing all activities being conducted on-site in order to create a proper mitigation plan.

Asbestos Inspection: An Old Enemy that Can Create New Problems
Despite its current limited use, asbestos still remains in older facilities and could harm employees, workers, and the general public. Asbestos-containing materials that get disturbed can release fibers and particles into the air and have been linked to:
- Pleural disease
- Lung cancer
- Reduced immune system functions
- Respiratory ailments
To avoid these conditions, companies should conduct regular asbestos inspections through a certified partner like SITEX. These inspections proactively identify asbestos, allowing it to be addressed before anyone is exposed.
