From Sample Collection and Analysis to Consultation and Remediation

Industrial hygiene anticipates, recognizes, evaluates and controls conditions in the workplace that may cause sickness, impaired health, or significant discomfort among your workers.  Let Adirondack help ensure your workplace is safe and healthy.

If you already have your own Safety and Health team, use Adirondack's experienced experts to supplement your ongoing IH programs. We provide our clients with best-practice consultation services including: employee exposure assessments and field sampling, real-time and laboratory based contaminant analysis,  workplace and community noise exposure evaluations, indoor air quality testing and environmental improvement consulting, and environmental health and safety plan (HASP) development and project oversight.

Smaller organizations frequently turn to Adirondack to outsource the development and implementation of their company's required IH programs.  We can help identify and develop a wide range of OSHA required monitoring programs including those for: Hearing Conservation, Respiratory Protection, PPE, Lead, Hexavalent Chromium, Asbestos, Cadmium, Formaldehyde, Benzene, PCBs, Volatiles and Semi-Volatiles, Non-ionizing Radiation and HAZCOM.

Adirondack's laboratory is accredited by the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) for a wide range of NIOSH and OSHA sampling methods.  Our clients prefer this as it helps to speed up the sampling process and provides our clients with direct contact with those who are actually performing the analysis work.  This also provides an opportunity for joint development of specialized analysis between you and our lab for unique analytical needs.
