Industrial Hygiene

Penn Air’s Industrial Hygiene Evaluation serves to protect workers, improve lives, work conditions, and productivity, all while ensuring that the surrounding community receives the same attention.

Work hazards such as chemical (harmful liquids and gases), biological (contagious bacteria and viruses), and physical (extreme noise and heat) can result in mental anguish, emotional stress, illness and injury. By identifying these costly dangers immediately, the easier it will be to eliminate them completely.

In the case of a local hot sauce manufacturer, several complaints about eye irritation and respiratory problems were reported from both workers and neighboring residents. The process of preparing the chilies produced noxious fumes. This business and its product become a public safety hazard. Changing the recipe could diminish the product’s success, but installing an appropriate ventilation system will benefit the community’s health and economics.

Enhanced filtration can reduce harmful exposure.
