Meet the IH Heroes

 

Do your friends, family, and loved ones arrive home every day in good health and well-being? If so, it's due largely to the work of these hidden-in-plain-sight heroes, also known as "industrial hygienists." This secretive group of professionals fight every day to keep workplaces and workspaces safe so that the rest of us can work without fear of sickness or calamity.

These modest and humble professionals choose to stay out of the spotlight, knowing that their work speaks for itself. Fortunately, eight individuals have allowed us to shine a spotlight on them, giving us a peek into their demanding yet satisfying careers.

 

 What's an IH?

 

IH is code for "industrial hygienist," a codename that provides cover for one of the most important and rewarding jobs on Earth: protecting people from danger at work and in their communities.

These professionals use the latest breakthroughs in science, technology, engineering, and research to anticipate potential threats. Many of these threats surround us on a daily basis, an unseen enemy IHs are trained to recognize and fight.

IHs are everywhere; here's just a fraction of industries they work in:

  • Chemical companies
  • Hazardous waste disposal
  • Manufacturing facilities
  • Colleges and universities
  • Government
  • Research labs
  • Consulting firms
  • Aerospace programs
  • Hospitals
  • Energy companies
  • Public utilities
  • Insurance companies
  • Technology firms

and so many more...
