An effective health and safety program changes with the times. Permissible exposure levels, indoor air quality, illness and injury prevention programs (SB198), and increased penalties for OSHA violations are just a few examples of the evolving nature of occupational health. Our industrial hygiene and safety expertise can help you deal with the increasing scope and complexity of today's occupational health liabilities.

Acumen offers professional services in the design, evaluation, and implementation of complete or partial workplace health and safety programs for most industries. We can prepare and implement your respiratory protection program, survey your workplace for health and safety hazards, develop air sampling plans, review your ventilation system, help you with hazard communication, and train your workforce on a variety of health and safety topics. We offer these services in English, Spanish, and Cantonese.

The following projects illustrate the breadth of our experience and our ability to address a wide variety of issues for engineering firms, manufacturing companies, housing agencies, and county governments.
