OSHA regulates hundreds of chemicals in “Subpart Z-Toxic and Hazardous Substances,” 29 CFR 1910.1000 through 1910.1450. Understanding which if any of these chemicals may be a cause for concern at your workplace is the job for a CIH. A certified industrial hygienist can help you identify potential chemical or physical exposures, evaluate their severity and assist in controlling or eliminating the hazard.
