Testing

*Respiratory Fit Testing: Qualitative and Quantitative testing WAC 296.842.22010

*Hexavalent Chromium Testing:  For those industries exposing employee(s) to Hexavalent Chromium must perform initial monitoring to determine the 8-hour TWA exposure for each employee on the basis of a sufficient number of personal breathing zone air samples to accurately characterize full shift exposure on each shift, for each job classification, in each work area. Where an employer does representative sampling instead of sampling all employees in order to meet this requirement, the employer shall sample the employee(s) expected to have the highest chromium (VI) exposures.

We will complete an 8 hour air test with pictures narrative and final lab analysis results report.

*Ergonomics Assessment: You've probably heard the term "ergonomics" before. It's a relatively new field of study concerning how a person interacts with the working environment. "Ergonomics" is a broad field, but the basic goal of an ergonomics program is injury prevention. This injury prevention is accomplished by fitting the job to the worker instead of fitting the worker to the job.

Injuries arising from poor ergonomic conditions typically involve the bones, muscles, joints, tendons, and nerves. We have found that a very common sense approach has been successful in our application.

We Provide training, investigation, reporting and support for ergonomics issues.

*Noise and hearing Conservation testing: In 1981, OSHA implemented new requirements to protect all workers in general industry (e.g. the manufacturing and the service sectors) for employers to implement a Hearing Conservation Program where workers are exposed to a time weighted average noise level of 85 dBA or higher over an 8 hour work shift. Hearing Conservation Programs require employers to measure noise levels, provide free annual hearing exams and free hearing protection, provide training, and conduct evaluations of the adequacy of the hearing protectors in use unless changes to tools, equipment and schedules are made so that they are less noisy and worker exposure to noise is less than the 85 dBA.
