What is Industrial Hygiene?
Industrial hygiene is the science of protecting and enhancing the health and safety of people at work and in their communities. Health and safety hazards cover a wide range of chemical, physical, biological and ergonomic stressors. Those dedicated to anticipating, recognizing, evaluating and controlling those hazards are known as Industrial Hygienists. They are professionals dedicated to the well-being of people – at work, at home and in the community.
Industrial hygiene use many different monitoring, testing and analytical methods to detect the extent of an individual’s exposure and employs engineering, work practice controls and other methods to prevent or minimize potential health hazards.
Who is a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH)?
A Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) is an individual who has met the minimum requirements for education and experience, and through examination, has demonstrated a minimum level of knowledge and skills in the following rubric (subject matter) areas:
• Air Sampling & Instrumentation
• Analytical Chemistry
• Basic Science
• Biostatistics & Epidemiology
• Community Exposure
• Engineering Controls/Ventilation
• Health Risk Analysis & Hazard Communication
• IH Program Management
• Non-Engineering Controls
• Radiation – Ionizing and Non-ionizing
• Thermal Stressors
• Work Environments & Industrial Processes
To aid employers and the public, a voluntary professional certification program was established in 1960. The American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH) was established as an independent corporation with the sole purpose of providing a certification program that ensured a minimum level of knowledge and skills in industrial hygiene. The ABIH program has since become the world’s largest, premier certification scheme for Industrial Hygienists. Certification is a professional milestone, providing a third party, independent indicator of achievement.
