Employee Exposure Monitoring
SRP Environmental will evaluate each client’s potential exposure to determine if Exposure Monitoring is necessary and if so, what type of sampling is required to meet the OSHA standards. SRP utilizes Analytical Laboratories accredited by the American Industrial Hygiene Association.
SRP measures exposure to contaminants including
- – asbestos,
- – silica,
- – hydrogen sulfide,
- – carbon monoxide,
- – fumes,
- – organic vapors,
- – chemicals,
- – gases,
- – respirable dust,
- – noise,
- – and particulates.
Employers should evaluate their employees’ exposures to chemical and physical hazards as an integral part of their Hazard Communication Program. The SRP Environmental Industrial Hygiene Group can conduct Exposure Identification and Risk Assessment Evaluations to help you meet this requirement. This process involves:
- – Review of Safety Data Sheets and Chemical Inventory
- – Facility walk-through to identify risks and hazards and determine how the employees are affected by the chemicals on site
- – Exposure Monitoring
- – Development of Exposure Control Plan and Corrective Action Programs
Noise Exposure Monitoring and Community Noise Surveys
Occupational Noise can affect the human body and can harm workers when they occur at high levels. SRP Industrial Hygienists measure and document noise exposures and provide recommendations to bring your company into compliance. Should the noise exposures exceed the OSHA Permissible Noise Levels, SRP can assist with the development and implementation of a Hearing Conservation Program, including noise control and abatement.
Operations involving high air temperatures, radiant heat sources, high humidity, direct physical contact with hot objects, or strenuous physical activities have a high potential for inducing heat stress. SRP will develop a Heat Stress Program to include the evaluation of heat stress levels, and the employees work practices to minimize the effects.
Indoor Environmental & Air Quality and LEED Sampling
The quality of air inside offices, schools, and other workplaces is important not only for workers’ comfort but also for their health. SRP Environmental inspects the building or facility for potential areas of hazard and our expert Industrial Hygiene team can perform the components of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) “Testing for Indoor Air Quality 01 81 09.”
If you plan on performing the demolition, renovation or maintenance of an older building, make sure an asbestos survey has been conducted.
SRP can assist with
- – Asbestos Surveys,
- – Project Design,
- – Air Monitoring, and
- – Asbestos Management Plans
