Synopsis:
Today, industrial hygienists enjoy a growing number of career opportunities due to their knowledge of the toxicological properties of chemicals used in the workplace and their ability to assess potential exposures. New roles such as human health risk assessors and product stewards employ skills similar to those of many industrial hygienists, who can play a significant role in developing health protection regulations and risk assessment guidance. In this article, published in The Synergist, Haley & Aldrich’s Anita Broughton, Scott Boston and Maryann Sanders discuss new opportunities for industrial hygienists that will allow them to share their technical expertise in more areas than just the shop floor.
