Program Overview

Industrial hygiene is the profession that anticipates, recognizes, evaluates, and controls workplace conditions to prevent injury or illness in workers. Industrial hygienists use environmental and workplace monitoring and analytical methods to identify exposures and estimate risk and use engineering, work practices, and protective equipment to control potential health hazards.

Our programs provide the knowledge and skills to identify workplace hazards, to comply with government regulations, and to manage occupational exposures and risk.
