The practice of industrial hygiene is the backbone of HP Environmental, Inc.  Our staff qualifications are augmented by our environmental, chemical and microbiological laboratory personnel.  Together, these personnel can evaluate exposure conditions and develop risk assessments and engineering solutions for conditions where exposure is unacceptable.

HP Environmental, Inc. evaluates potentially hazardous environments to determine risk associated with exposure via four principal routes, inhalation, cutaneous, oral and ocular.  Environments are surveyed for conditions of recognizable hazards.  Based on findings from surveys, evaluation for potential problem exposures may be conducted.  These evaluations include measurement of physical parameters as well as chemical and elemental concentrations in air and on surfaces.  Tests for biohazards are also conducted.  From the survey and evaluation data, corrective measures are developed, if necessary.
