Health and Safety

Safety and compliance first.
For protection that lasts.

CTEH experts support your culture of safety with effective strategies for protecting your workforce and building on compliance to enhance preparedness.

Implement Effective Health and Hygiene Programs

CTEH’s suite of experts—Certified Industrial Hygienists, Certified Safety Professionals (CSPs), health scientists, safety management specialists, field hygienists, occupational health experts, and training staff—can work directly with you to help manage safety liabilities, train workforces, and reduce overall operating costs. 

These assessments and programs go beyond maintaining good standing with OSHA; they’re also a key step in helping protect workers and avoiding hazards. In a constantly changing regulatory landscape, proactive organizations are thinking beyond the bare minimum to develop strategies that help them prepare for revisions in standards and strengthen internal alignment around safety.

  • Program Development

    Creating an effective health and hygiene program is not a one-time task. Ongoing updates and regular evaluation are essential to support sustainable safety practices and maintain alignment with core industrial hygiene goals. OSHA regulations also require periodic evaluations to incorporate regulatory changes and assess performance.

    Periodic reassessment of chemical, biological, and physical hazards, as well as ventilation and other critical systems, forms the core of any program, along with evaluation of all inputs (exposure data, safety data sheets, equipment) and outputs (illness and injury statistics, personal protective equipment requirements, medical surveillance). These assessments can reduce costs by focusing limited resources on the areas that can have the greatest impact on protecting worker health.

  • Qualitative and Quantitative Assessments

    Every organization has specific areas that call for targeted health and hygiene assessment and development of custom interventions. Our CIHs are skilled at both understanding specialized circumstances and creating tailor-made solutions that can improve occupational hygiene.

    These projects typically revolve around the completion of Workplace Exposure Assessments (WEAs), which include:

    • Comprehensive evaluation of potential workplace hazards (physical, chemical, and biological)

    • Assessment of engineering controls, administrative controls, and personal protective equipment

    • Preparation of hazard-ranked priority sampling plans based on a standardized protocol

    • Monitoring of employee exposures

Improve Indoor Air Quality

The quality of the air inside your facilities is a key factor in worker health and well-being. The CTEH indoor air quality (IAQ) team draws from multiple disciplines, including industrial hygiene and safety, toxicology, occupational health, environmental, and chemistry. Members hold several certifications and have undertaken hundreds of hours of air quality, building investigation, and microbial assessment training.

Our team has extensive experience investigating public and commercial buildings, industrial facilities, and residences for issues related to water intrusion, sewage releases, compromised building envelopes, and odor, as well as investigating flood claims for utility companies, insurance companies, institutional real estate, the hospitality and gaming industry, governmental agencies, and public and private schools.

  • Mold Assessments

    Left untreated, mold can impact indoor air quality, and even cause harm to human health. CTEH is able to perform in-depth investigations to determine the presence of mold, either pre- or post-remediation. We also develop mold remediation protocols, oversee remediation contractor services, and provide post-remediation verification testing.

  • Post-Disaster Asbestos and Lead Sampling

    In the aftermath of an environmental incident, CTEH can evaluate sites for the presence of both asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) and lead, develop abatement specifications and protocols, monitor remediation activities, and conduct clearance testing to verify removal.

Promote Worker Health & Safety

In any facility, the occupational health and safety of workers is a top priority. Effective industrial hygiene programs should be designed to anticipate, recognize, evaluate, and control threats to worker health. CTEH’s experienced team of CIHs are worker health and safety problem-solvers who focus on your workers’ specific situations, and maintain the flexibility to work around changing schedules and unanticipated job requirements. 

We can quickly assess needs including hazard recognition, quantification of identified exposures, and development of controls to reduce or eliminate hazardous exposure scenarios. We also have powerful, in-house industrial hygiene data visualization solutions that empower you to identify key risks and make rapid critical decisions.

  • Industrial Hygiene and Safety

    CTEH’s industrial hygiene experts quickly, efficiently, and thoroughly conduct chemical, physical, and biological exposure assessments to inform protective health decisions related to environmental contaminants. 

    Industrial hygiene surveys using proven methodologies are performed by our field hygienists with expertise in exposure assessments. All surveys are overseen by a CIH or toxicologist with experience in the particular hazard. Our unique exposure modeling capabilities provide clients with clear insight into potential exposures.
