ALL-TECH is pleased to employ our own Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH), as well as numerous Occupational Hygiene Specialists. Industrial hygienists are scientists and engineers committed to protecting the health and safety of people in the workplace and the community. A professional industrial hygienist is a person meeting the requirements of education, a minimum of three years of industrial hygiene experience, and passes a certification exam, and continuous education. With a CIH on staff, we have the ability to keep our services in-house, providing a better service to our clients.
Numerous manufacturing processes, operations and equipment/machinery involving the use of chemicals can result in occupational hygiene concerns due to worker exposure to hazardous substances. Some of these activities or the environments in which machinery and equipment is present can also lead to worker exposure to physical agents such as noise and heat. Overexposure to such chemical and physical hazards is a major cause of occupational illness among workers and can also result in significant costs for business through lost time and higher work place insurance premiums.
Under the Occupational Health and Safety Act it is the duty of owners and other persons (including employers, supervisors and constructors) to ensure that the health and safety of workers is protected by taking every precaution reasonable in the circumstances. Bill C-45 amended the Canadian Criminal Code where all organizations and individuals who direct the work of others have a legal duty to take reasonable steps to ensure the safety of workers and the public.
