OSHA Returns To In-Person Inspections As COVID-19 Restrictions Lift
Chris Schneider

One of the main priorities of any workplace is to keep its employees safe and healthy. But in practice, ensuring employee safety and health can prove difficult. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), 5,250 workers died from workplace-related injuries in 2018, and 2.8 million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses occurred in the private sector alone. Fortunately, proper industrial hygiene in the workplace can help. A robust industrial hygiene and chemical safety program helps reduce hazard levels in the workplace, and it gives employees the tools and protection they need to stay safe when they encounter hazards.

Please feel free to e-mail me and we can set aside some time to discuss how we can assist you.

Sincerely,
Chris Schneider, CIH, President
