About Olmsted Environmental Services, Inc

Industrial hygienists assure a healthy working /indoor environment by monitoring conditions, conducting tests, and implementing changes to gain maximum employee or occupant protection. Some of the more common indoor or workplace hazards that industrial hygienists address are: poor indoor air quality, mold, asbestos, mercury, lead, and ergonomic hazards.

In the United States industrial hygienists are certified by the American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH) which is a non-profit corporation organized to improve the practice and educational standards of the profession of industrial hygiene. A period of five (5) years experience in the field of industrial hygiene is necessary before a person may take the certifying examination. Upon passing a rigorous examination, certification is overseen by the organization.

Olmsted Environmental Services, Inc. is a full service industrial hygiene company. Most industrial hygiene companies have certified industrial hygienists review projects, but they do not actually perform surveys and inspections themselves . Olmsted Environmental Services, Inc. is one of the few companies in which all surveys and inspections are performed by a CIH.

Indoor hazards may also relate to safety problems, such as fire safety, slip and falls, electrical hazards, confined space entry, machine safety and noise and dust hazards. We are also available to consult on these issues. At Olmsted Environmental Services, all surveys and training are provided by CSP's, or certified safety professionals. Similarly to the ABIH The Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) evaluates the academic and professional experience qualifications of safety professionals, and administers examinations, and issue certificates of qualification to those professionals who meet the Board's criteria and successfully pass its examinations. BCSP holds national accreditation.
