The Occupational Safety and Health Administration defines industrial hygiene as, "that science and art devoted to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, and control of those environmental factors or stresses arising in or from the workplace, which may cause sickness, impaired health and well-being, or significant discomfort among workers or among the citizens of the community." Activities in EHS in industrial hygiene are those that measure and monitor hazards as well as those that propose solutions to mitigate those hazards. Industrial hygiene activities, like air sampling, provide the raw data on which so many of the safety decisions made by EHS and the university are based.
