In order to assure that Industrial Hygiene Programs are functioning properly, there is a need to do periodic reviews. At LBNL, the guidance for these reviews is included in an institutional document that sets forth minimum requirements.
This document addresses the process and specific requirements to perform ongoing evaluations of major Environment, Safety, and Health programs at the Laboratory. The program was begun, on a pilot scale basis, in 2007. Since then, it has expanded to address about half of the current Industrial Hygiene programs, with the emphasis on the cornerstone programs, such as Chemical Hygiene and Safety, Confined Spaces, Respiratory Protection, Laser Safety, and Lead. Other program assessments are being added quarterly.
For questions, contact your area Industrial Hygienist or the Assurance Manager, Heather Madison, at extension 7609.
