How do you ensure precision with so many moving parts?
As the person responsible for managing industrial hygiene, you have a high wire juggling act to perform. The coordination of activities, people, regulations, laboratories, consultants is the just start, because once the assessments are over, and the data has been collected and analyzed — the right actions must be taken. Sometimes it’s a one and done scenario, but more often your IH activities require a sustained focus and action.
Your day-to-day challenges with IH can include finding the time and resources needed to conduct monitoring, staying on top of regulations, keeping staff trained in the face of high turnover, running reports and collating data just to find out the status of programs, and selling the value of IH to a management team that doesn’t get it.
If you’re a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH), it may be exactly what you signed up for. You may feel your education, training and interests coming together in the perfect role. Yet, if you’re like many CIHs, you may also feel weighed down by the knowledge of what’s necessary and the difficulty of getting others, especially executives holding the purse strings, to see what you see. Knowing what to do, but lacking the resources and time and to do everything on your list, can turn your days into an endless series of compromises.
If you’re not a CIH, but are responsible for your organization’s occupational health and safety, then you may feel like you’ve waded into the deep end of the pool without the necessary training, support and resources. Knowing where to start and how to optimally organize your IH programs can be overwhelming, especially given all the areas IH can touch in a large and/or complex organization — everything from air quality and emergency response planning to cumulative trauma disorders (e.g. musculoskeletal disorders) and hazardous waste management.
When it comes to industrial hygiene, even the best and most well trained among us can use a helping hand.
