Avoid OSHA Violations
IU Health Occupational Health Services seeks to become your partner for reducing OSHA violations. Our Corporate Industrial Hygienist, Tara Stroup , can offer air monitoring, noise monitoring, ventilation surveys, and more.
Industrial Hygiene Audit
Preparing the company for an OSHA audit by reviewing current required programs and practices. This includes a walk through of the facility. A written report is generated with comments and recommendations to aid in ensuring compliance.
Noise mapping for the facility can also be conducted. This produces a noise color-coded map of the facility. A written report is generated revealing the results and recommendations. Noise monitoring is required whenever high noise levels exist or are suspected. This should be conducted initially and whenever there is a change in the process. It is “recommended” that this be done annually.
This sample can be conducted to evaluate a known chemical hazard or to pinpoint an unknown potential employee hazard. A written report is generated revealing the results and recommendations. Air sampling is necessary to evaluate potential employee exposure to determine appropriate personal protective equipment, and for documentation. Frequency of air sampling, after initial evaluation, is chemical-specific. The frequency may be monthly quarterly, semi-annually, or annually.
Respirator Fit Testing (Quantitative/Qualitative)
This quantitative or qualitative test determines if the appropriate fit is achieved. Respirator fit testing is required after an employee clears medical evaluation but before the employee wears the respirator. Fit testing must be conducted annually thereafter or whenever a change has occurred with the employee (i.e., weight loss, glasses, dentures).
