Cashins & Associates: Assessing, documenting and mitigating workplace exposures for your company’s overall health.

What is Industrial Hygiene?

Industrial Hygiene Defined: Industrial Hygiene is the science and art devoted to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, prevention, and control of those environmental factors or stresses arising in or from the workplace which may cause sickness, impaired health and well being, or significant discomfort among workers or among citizens of the community (Source: American Industrial Hygiene Association).

Since 1981, Cashins & Associates has served as a full-service industrial hygiene consulting firm. Our experienced group of industrial hygienists can help your company ensure that employees, visitors, and family members are not impacted negatively by workplace exposures. Some exposures that can cause long-term health implications include toxic dust, noise, chemicals, and gases.

Assessing and documenting workplace exposures is not only required by Federal Law – it is a smart business practice. Corporations that put into practice a comprehensive Industrial Hygiene and Safety Program enjoy several benefits:

  • They save several times the amount of money it costs to implement the program.
  • Their employees have a higher productivity rate.
  • Workers compensation insurance premiums go down.
  • Employee morale goes up.
