Traditionally, many industrial hygienists (IHs) work with minimal data sets. Technological advancements result in the collection of a larger variety and volume of data in a shorter amount of time. This capability has led to data sets that are so large and complex that they become difficult to process using traditional analysis methods. In the big data world, the IH/OEHS professional could be analyzing and managing data sets consisting of structured, unstructured, and semi-structured data. This work enables conscientious decisions on how to protect worker health best and predict future exposures.
Here’s a Sneak Peek of What’s Inside:
- Identifying IH/OEHS roles as they apply to the collection, use, and management of big data
- Recognizing new opportunities to utilize and improve big data
- Creating and implementing a data management plan
- Developing staff resources to use synthesized information to make data-driven decisions
- Communicating the outputs of big data analysis
