What is Industrial Hygiene?
Industrial hygiene is becoming a very important concern for many companies in the Greater Toronto Area. With new changes to the Occupational Health and Safety Act further limiting workers' exposure to dangers in the workplace, industrial hygiene is more important than ever.
Industrial hygiene is defined as the prevention of work-related illnesses by recognizing, evaluating and controlling the known risks in the workplace. In most cases industrial hygiene also includes preventing dangers to the surrounding community as well.
