INDUSTRIAL HYGIENE

Industrial Hygiene Services are provided by Environmental Department staff, which helps our firm stand out from our competitors. Each staff member is cross trained to perform due diligence within the environmental department, however they are also trained to perform various industrial hygiene services, which are needed within most market settings, including construction, industrial, hospital and university settings to name a few. As the science of “protecting and enhancing the health and safety of the public at work,” continues to be a growing need, Hurt & Proffitt will continue to grow within the industry.
