Anticipating and Recognizing Hazards The first step to anticipating and recognizing hazards is to conduct a work site analysis. This will help you and your team determine what activities and areas are susceptible to hazard.
You will need to measure and identify exposures and risks, which includes inspecting, researching, and analyzing chemicals and physical hazards that put your work site or workers' health in jeopardy. It's important to regularly monitor your workplace environment to identify current and potential risks proactively—you don't want a reactive strategy. Begin by establishing a standardized process for industrial hygiene assessments across all site operations. Be sure to include all jobs, operations, and worker activities. Once you pinpoint risk points, assign corrective and preventative actions and track accordingly to closure.
At this point, it is also important to communicate any exceedances and notify your employees of identified hazards. Evaluating and Controlling Your Environment According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration OSHA , an effective industrial hygiene management program relies on recognizing that engineering, work practice, and administrative controls are the primary means of reducing employee exposure to occupational hazards.
Here are OSHA's recommendations for evaluating and controlling your environment according to their industrial hygiene training materials:. Implementing these controls in combination with proper employee training will largely help to prevent incidents from occurring, putting into effect proactive industrial hygiene management. Managing Your Occupational Health and Safety Program When it comes to managing your occupational health and safety program, your job can be made easier if equipped with the right tools.
This is where investing in industrial hygiene software comes into play.
Using outdated methods, such as Excel spreadsheets or, worse, pen and paper methods, is in itself a serious risk. While these management systems do work, it requires more time and effort on your end and is prone inaccuracy and miscommunication. One case where ineffective industrial hygiene management proved devastating was a series of explosions that resulted in fatalities and hundreds of injuries at the Port of Tianjin on Aug.

Sadly, the explosions could have easily been prevented had industrial hygiene management been in place. Through investigation, it was discovered that many of the hazardous materials stored at Port of Tianjin were incompatible with one another and were improperly stored. The chemicals on site were not properly documented and were not approved by the Chinese government. There was no buffer zone established between the site and the community, putting innocent lives at risk.
All were activities that should have been monitored and managed to prevent this incident from happening.
