Industrial Hygiene

Extensive industrial hygiene support for the life sciences sector.

Trinity Consultants’ SafeBridge group is comprised of authoritative experts in industrial hygiene who ensure the safety of workers in life science environments while effectively communicating hazards.

SafeBridge’s team of board-certified health and safety professionals provide industrial hygiene services in a variety of industries, with a focus on pharmaceutical, fine chemical, and laboratory workplaces. Our support, onsite and remote, gives our clients the tools they need to assess the potential for hazardous drug exposure and protect their workers in research, manufacturing, and healthcare environments. Our expertise includes containment performance assessments, exposure assessments, guidance on safe handling of potent compounds, engineering project review, ongoing technical support, and our AIHA-accredited industrial hygiene analytical laboratory, which develops methods and performs analysis of active pharmaceutical ingredients.

Demystify HD Surface Sampling Recommendations

Hazardous drug (HD) surface sampling is often overlooked in healthcare, tangled in the complexities of USP <800> guidance on setting acceptable surface limits. Our industrial hygiene, occupational toxicology, and pharmacy cleanroom compliance experts (Amy Snow, Janet Gould, and Elaine Strauss) are members of AIHA’s Working Group on Surface Sampling Recommendations. Led by SafeBridge’s Amy Snow, this group has changed the narrative, releasing an official AIHA Guidance Document as well as this recent article in Pharmacy Purchasing and Products.
