Mission: Creating knowledge to protect worker health

Vision: Elimination of workplace illnesses

The Profession: Industrial hygienists anticipate health and safety concerns and design solutions to prevent them. They are the guardians of workplace safety, applying science to identify and solve health and safety problems. Industrial hygienists also unite management, workers and all segments of a company behind the common goal of health and safety.​

Join one of our IH Heroes as they tackle an obstacle or challenge that stands against worker and public health and safety. Every day, our heroes push themselves to protect our loved ones and friends from harm in the workplace so they can return home safe and sound.
