The weight of scientific evidence has not linked cell phones with any health problems. Cell phones emit low levels of radiofrequency energy (RF). Over the past 15 years, scientists have conducted hundreds of studies looking at the biological effects of the radiofrequency energy emitted by cell phones.
TLVs® and BEIs® are often recognized as “safe levels” for worker exposures to chemical substances and physical agents. Proper application of TLVs® and BEIs® are essential to today’s practice of industrial hygiene.
You’ve decided your facility would benefit from the installation and implementation of a gas detection system. This is a big step in protecting your workers and your facility. Now comes the fun part, selecting the right technology to meet the needs of your application.
The American Industrial Hygiene Association’s (AIHA) website has undergone a major redesign that includes a new online University and Consumer Center Makes the organization says will make IH/OEHS resources more accessible than ever.
The online address remains the same: www.AIHA.org.
The new website adds content resources for industrial hygiene and occupational health professionals, government agencies, researchers and students interested in worker health and safety, and the general public.
The job of the industrial hygiene technicians at the Hanford Site in Richland, Washington, is a matter of life and death. They run around with radiation counters and air samplers, tracking radiation and toxic chemicals that can harm the site’s workers, especially those dealing with dangerous underground tanks full of nuclear wastes in the center of the reservation.
Operations that produce dust as a byproduct of their processes rely on an industrial dust collection system to provide clean air to the workplace. However, the dust collection system itself could be a source of danger if it isn’t properly equipped and maintained.

ACGIH® announced today the release of its two-tier Under Study list pursuant to changes previously made to its TLV®/BEI® Development Process.
In 2006, ACGIH® began providing additional information on the status of chemical substances and physical agents that are on the Under Study list.
A lawsuit working its way through the federal court system claims that a contractor allowed inexperienced and unqualified industrial hygiene technicians (IHTs) to work at a hazardous nuclear materials site.
News sources say lawsuit was filed by Kevin Newcomb, an IHT who worked at “tank farms” at the now-decommissioned Hanford nuclear production complex in Washington State for more than two decades.
