Industrial Hygiene


IH professors Gurumurthy Ramachandran and Pete Raynor and IH graduate student Jooyeon Hwang conduct a walk-through survey of particle levels and engineering controls at a taconite processing facility in Eveleth, MN.


The Industrial Hygiene (IH) program is concerned with the health and safety of people at work, and the community at large. Specific concerns are with the recognition, evaluation and control of potential workplace hazards, including chemical, physical and biological agents; and the potential health threats to the community and the environment.
