Industrial Hygiene Sampling Programs and Databases

1Source staff has performed thousands of occupational health / industrial hygiene surveys and related services for clients in a variety of settings. These have ranged from one day sampling for a limited number of physical stressors and chemical substances to multiple-week sampling by a team of hygienists for a wide variety of chemicals and other exposures. We have helped clients develop and implement programs to identify potentially hazardous exposures. The bullets below identify some individual services.

  • Source Evaluations
  • Job hazard analysis (JHA)
  • Qualitative Exposure Assessments (QEA)
  • Similar Exposure Group (SEG) Assessments
  • Sampling & Analysis Plans
  • Chemical and Physical Sampling Programs
  • Routine Monitoring
  • Emergency Sampling
  • OSHA Compliance Monitoring
  • PPE Assessments
  • SMARTouch IH Database Software

Our professional certified industrial hygienists (CIH) identify potential chemical exposure issues, design sampling surveys to evaluate the potential for exposure and overexposure and develop recommendations to minimize or eliminate potential exposure. We follow strict QA/QC control procedures from equipment calibration through laboratory chain-of-custody. To ensure the accuracy of sample analysis we only use laboratories accredited by the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA).

SMARTouch IH Software

SMARTouch Industrial Hygiene software is specifically designed around data collection during industrial hygiene surveys. The data collection logic was developed by a team of industrial hygienists with many years of air sampling and monitoring experience. Information is collected specific to the facility, the employee and the contaminants in an easy to use format. Standard reporting formats including employee notification forms are provided; however, we know that clients may have specific reporting needs so customized reports are also available. The most current version has the ability to link photographs, laboratory reports, field notes, etc. to each sample record. SMARTouch is used for all IH sampling surveys that 1Source conducts to ensure accuracy of data. Interested in purchasing SMARTouch to maintain your past, current and future IH data and records, please contact Chris Schneider, CIH at 610.524.5525 ext. 14, or via e-mail.
