Hospital Industrial Hygiene Services

Acting as a single resource, SRP streamlines the needs of healthcare facilities across multiple departments. SRP works with healthcare facilities to ensure that OSHA and Joint Commission regulations are being met.  Our hospital and healthcare services include industrial hygiene exposure monitoring, waste anesthesia gas testing, clean room surveys, biological cabinet certification, ergonomics, as well as health and safety training.  Additional services include asbestos management, indoor air quality and disaster/large loss response.

Medical & Waste Anesthesia Gas Testing

SRP Environmental Will

  • Evaluate potential sources of Waste Anesthesia Gases
  • Develop a sampling strategy to determine employee exposures
  • Develop Corrective actions based on exposure monitoring results.

Common Waste Anesthesia Gases Include Desflurane, Isoflurane, Sevoflurane and Nitrous Oxide.

  • Assist in the selection of proper respirators
  • Conduct respiratory training
  • Conduct respirator fit testing

Clean Room Surveys

USP 797 requires the following testing as part of the certification process:

  • Non-viable particulate measurement
