Who are Industrial Hygienists and why are they in my work area?

You may have seen one of William Beaumont Army Medical Center Industrial Hygiene Team members in your work area. The Army Industrial Hygiene Team is tasked to anticipate, recognize, evaluate and control occupational health hazards where military and civilian personnel work and serve. In order to accomplish these tasks, an Industrial Hygienist (IH) will conduct evaluations, or surveys, at the workplace operations to determine the employees’ (both military and civilian) potential exposures to chemical, physical, biological and ergonomics hazards.

The Army Industrial Hygiene team will:

  • Conduct workplace evaluation to ensure occupational health hazards are anticipated, recognized, evaluated and controlled where military and civilian personnel work and serve.
  • Recommend the control of occupational injuries and illnesses with use of practical solutions.
  • Encourage good industrial hygiene work practices to reduce exposures.
  • Communicate health and safety information.
  • Identify areas of non-compliance with applicable Health and Safety related Federal, state laws, and codified regulations.

What do we do with the information collected?

The information that is gathered during these evaluations, including worker exposure monitoring results, is entered into the DOEHRS-IH. This database collection system is used throughout the Department of Defense. DOEHRS-IH records contain a history of individual worker pre-deployment, deployment, and post-deployment exposures. The data can then be analyzed and utilized by Environmental, Safety and Occupational Health practitioners to prioritize preventive medicine actions. This includes a baseline to facilitate exposure-based medical surveillance and post-deployment follow-up, allocation of resources, implementation of controls, and development of appropriate training programs. All these actions enhance combat readiness by focusing efforts to reduce workplace exposures, illnesses and injuries.
