We now offer HASP training for you and your staff!
Aero-Environmental Consulting provides health and safety consulting services in connection with specific work activities performed at sites where hazardous materials and/or wastes are known or are suspected to exist. Services include preparation of site health and safety plans, establishing field work zones and decontamination areas, environmental air monitoring, and coordination of health and safety issues during emergency response cleanup projects.
Aero-Environmental Certified Industrial Hygienists, Registered Environmental Assessors, and senior level professionals develop site health and safety plans designed to establish health and safety procedures concerning specific work activities performed at sites where hazardous materials and/or hazardous wastes are known or are suspected to exist.
Aero-Environmental senior staff members conduct site inspections and safety meetings, evaluate exposure potentials, upgrade and downgrade personal protective equipment requirements, coordinate collection of air and bulk samples, review standard operating procedures and general safe work practices with site personnel, establish emergency action plans, verify compliance with all medical surveillance and training recordkeeping requirements, and act as liaison between property owners, contractors, and regulatory agencies.
Aero-Environmental provides environmental air monitoring using traditional industrial hygiene sampling equipment and direct-reading instruments. Airborne contaminant concentrations are determined in worker breathing zones and at stationary locations both upwind and downwind of exclusion zone areas. Historically, target chemical contaminants have included hexane, methane and other volatile organic compounds, metals, dusts, inorganic and organic acids, asbestos, pesticides, and flammable atmospheres.
Physical hazards, such as noise exposure and heat stress, are also evaluated with the use of audio dosimeters and wet bulb globe temperature instruments, respectively. The direct-reading instruments available include photo ionization detectors, organic vapor analyzers, combustible gas and oxygen indicators, colorimetric detector tubes, as well as devices designed to detect specific compounds such as hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen cyanide, ammonia and carbon monoxide.
