Benjamin MacDonald of RPF Environmental Obtains Certified Industrial Hygienist Credentials

Posted By RPF Environmental, Inc. || 8-Aug-2017

At RPF Environmental, we are continually striving to provide better and better environmental testing and consulting services for our clients throughout Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and beyond. Part of how we accomplish the ever-rising trend of great client service is by collecting new knowledge, growing our understanding, and proving that we are the industry experts that professionals and corporations alike can depend on.

In an impressive show of his professional abilities, Benjamin MacDonald of RPF Environmental has recently expanded his own knowledge base, and therefore further improved our already-specialized company, by passing the American Board of Industrial Hygiene exam. This challenging accomplishment has officially earned his Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) credentials. We would like to take this time to congratulate Benjamin on his success and look forward to all of his fantastic achievements that certainly await.

What is an Industrial Hygienist?

Much of the projects we take on at RPF Environmental are focused on improving safety conditions at industrial sites and ensuring nothing at such locations jeopardizes local communities through containment leaks or hazardous disposal errors. An industrial hygienist takes a scientific approach to this task, reviewing worksites and analyzing any potential hazards to help protect worker and community member health as well as encouraging safe habits and protocols. Due to the extremely technical knowledge required for the job, only a Certified Industrial Hygienist with appropriate credentials should be retained.

In order to obtain CIH credentials, the individual must excel in:

  • Air sampling
  • Biostatistics
  • Community exposure
  • Engineering and non-engineering controls
  • Health risk analysis
  • Radiation research
  • Toxicology
  • And much more
