“Sick” workplaces can have a negative impact on the health of employees as well as people in the surrounding community. Pamela Stern, our professional industrial hygienist on staff, has extensive experience in recognizing, evaluating and controlling stressful environmental factors such as mold and fungus.
Becoming a Professional Industrial Hygienist
In order to achieve the designation of professional industrial hygienist, an individual must meet specific academic and field criteria.
- A candidate must hold a bachelor’s degree in engineering, chemistry or related biological or physical science from an accredited institution.
- In addition, the individual must have completed at least three years of industrial hygiene experience.
- A master’s degree equates to one year of experience while a doctorate can count for two years, but that is the maximum amount of work experience that may be waived.
Certified Industrial Hygienist
The American Industrial Hygiene Association recommends that all eligible members attain certification from the American Board of Industrial Hygiene. Requirements include:
- Academic training along with four years of work experience
- Passing a one-day exam
- Staying active by applying for recertification every five years
As a professional industrial hygienist, Pamela’s responsibilities include evaluating hazardous conditions in the workplace, developing methods to treat and control possible risk factors, and training workers in proper heath and safety procedures.
