Industrial Hygiene Monitoring Considerations in Health Care Settings

In February 2017, I participated in an open call with the Industrial Hygiene Practice Specialty (IHPS) of the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) about industrial hygiene monitoring considerations in health settings. If you missed it, you can access the video and handout from the IHPS website.

Hear the #industrioushygienist speak about industrial hygiene in healthcare!

The gist of the presentation / open call was: "Healthcare workers are at risk for a variety of occupational exposures to chemical hazards, including hazardous drugs, anesthetic gases, and disinfectants. While resources exist for guidance on assessing occupational exposures to these hazards, there is no single resource for safety professionals in healthcare settings to use in developing a defensible industrial hygiene (IH) monitoring program."

We are working on a series of open calls to address some of the questions from attendees, so watch for that information in the near future. IHPS is hoping to share the expertise of our Volunteer Advisory Committee with safety professionals around the world through these open calls.
