Health and Safety

SJR staff is knowledgeable with OSHA 29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 1910.120 and 1926 and can certify that projects comply with the applicable requirements. Personnel are trained in such areas as: lead-based paint/risk assessment, asbestos building inspections, certified hazardous material management (CHMM) and other industrial hygiene areas. SJR can provide safe working conditions for all persons involved in their projects.

safetyFurthermore, SJR specialists develop and implement site-specific health and safety plans (SSHASP). These plans identify and analyze potential hazards related to a site or project, provide employee exposure routes, discuss methods for environmental monitoring, establish hazard communication programs and emergency response plans, stipulate personnel training requirements and PPE selection, and discuss such topics as site control, confined space entry, and decontamination procedures.

SJR technicians are also experts with various types of direct read instrumentation, including photo ionization detectors (PIDs), flame ionization detectors (FIDs), noise dosimeters, O2/H2S, radiation detectors, and colorimetric indicator tubes. They can perform personal and area monitoring for various compounds, including Volatilized Organic Compounds (VOC) and metals. This information helps to establish appropriate engineering controls, selection of adequate PPE, and ensures that an employee’s occupational exposure remains below permissible exposure limits (PEL). Additionally, SJR staff has conducted field activities in various levels of PPE, including Level B and C operations.
