Workplace Exposure Assessment
An exposure assessment attempts to answer the following questions for a particular substance or chemical:
- Who or what is exposed (e.g.,people, aquatic ecosystems) ?
- Does the exposure occur through breathing air, drinking water, skin contact or any other routes?
- How much exposure occurs?
- How often and for how long does exposure occur, that is, what is its frequency and duration?
Exposure occurs through contact with a chemical. Such contact can occur by inhaling air, drinking water, eating food, or touching a variety of products that contain the chemical. The concentration of the chemical and the extent of the contact are important components of exposure assessment. The results of an exposure assessment are often considered with a hazard assessment of the chemical. A hazard assessment provides an understanding of the potential for the chemical to cause adverse effects to humans and plant and animal life. Together, the exposure assessment and the hazard assessment can be combined into a risk assessment, which reaches conclusions about the likelihood of adverse effects in the exposed population.
The Brookly Bridge
Inspection of the Arch area for potential asbestos containing materials, potential lead-based paint, and other hazardous materials was completed by EnviroMed. A sampling plan was proposed by EnviroMed to NYCDOT for the following concerns: sample ceiling plaster (two layers of plaster), sample pipe insulation, inspect and sample the office partitions and doors for asbestos, test the paint for lead, sample the dust via bulk samples and analyze for asbestos and lead, perform TCLP sampling and analysis for building debris prior to disposal, and characterize the liquid wastes in storage. Personal sampling during the work was recommended for lead in air, asbestos in air and total particulate. Full details

The Town of Wallingford
EnviroMed Services provides safety training based on OSHA regulations to the Wallingford Department of Public Works facilities and the Electric Division facilities. EnviroMed Services provides OSHA training programs for the Wallingford Electric Division for the past 10 years to meet their responsibility under OSHA regulations. EnviroMed Services personnel conducted an audit of town’s public utility maintenance and distribution system and work crew. EnviroMed Services personnel visited sites, which included observing daily activities that were conducted for the work crew, log our observations, have any dangerous work habits changed and abated. Once EnviroMed Services site visit and observation were completed our client asked us to write actual OSHA safety programs for the city to follow. The city at the time had no such programs and was in need of such programs. EnviroMed wrote the following OSHA Safety Programs that are being used by this client today:
- Bloodborne Pathogens
- Fall Protection
- Respiratory Protection
- Chemical Hygiene
- Hot Works
- Trenching and Shoring
- Confined Space Entry
- Lockout and Tagout
- Electrical Safety
- Personal Protective Equipment
- Emergency Plan and Evacuation
- Powered Industrial Trucks
- OSHA 10 and 30 Hour Training
- Fire Protection
- Scaffolds Training (4-hour)
- 40 hour HAZWOPER Training
