Industrial Hygiene & Workplace Safety

You need to protect your people and your business. Real problems can’t be solved with a single data point and checking a box. Careful planning is necessary to solve these problems and make your organization stronger.

Good health and safety programs require thoughtful planning by experienced professionals to protect people and prevent accidents. MFA works closely with clients to focus on effective risk-reduction, not needless sampling data and paperwork.

Industrial hygiene (IH) services offered by MFA extend beyond simple air and noise monitoring to include IH strategy development, modeling, dermal exposure assessments, toxicological review, statistical analysis, and effective risk communication. MFA provides:

  • Chemical exposure assessments and risk assessments
  • Asbestos project management
  • Specific programs and assessments for substances such as asbestos, lead, benzene, hexavalent chromium, and cadmium
  • Indoor air quality investigations
  • Occupational and community noise evaluations
  • Lighting surveys
  • Thermal stress evaluations
  • Ergonomic assessments

Workplace safety services start with understanding the hazards and risks present at a facility, and then developing a plan that fits your company. You need to provide a safe workplace for your employees, not binders of boilerplate plans. MFA can help you develop and manage programs including:

  • Process safety management and risk management plans for highly hazardous chemicals
  • Hazard communication
  • Lockout tagout
  • Confined space
  • Respiratory protection
  • Personal protective equipment
