    Industrial Hygiene Module

    Getting Started with an Industrial Module - Agent Data:

    If you are setting up a new site, you will need to add your facilities (locations) to your IndustrySafe site before you can start with the Industrial Hygiene Module.  See the Getting Started Guide for more information on this set-up below.

    To get started with entering your agent data:

    1. Go to the Industrial Hygiene module by selecting the Industrial Hygiene tab
    2. On the horizontal menu, select the green plus sign in the upper left and then select Add New Agent
    3. The Agent Recording Form will appear
    4. Complete the appropriate fields, including the required fields
    5. Identify how many agency standards (i.e. NIOSH, OSHA) you are using for that agent.
    6. Complete the appropriate limit fields and limit unit fields.
      Note: (The first agency standard you enter will be utilized when displaying/calculating limits for that agent in the other areas of the Industrial Hygiene Module)
    7. Select Save
    8. The Agent you just entered will appear in the Agent Summary.

     View the Quick Start Guide here.

    Notes:
    Once this agent data is entered, you can select the appropriate agent when conducting area sampling, personal monitoring, and qualitative exposure assessment.  You will not need to re-enter limits or toxicity on the other forms within IndustrySafe once you have completed your agent data.

    Toxicity Rating is a user entered number that is utilized to calculate the Exposure Rating Profile in the Qualitative Exposure Assessment.  IndustrySafe does not automatically complete the Toxicity rating for you.

    Analysis Grid Reporting

    The purpose of the analysis grid reports in IndustrySafe is to provide a complete package of data analysis capabilities so that IndustrySafe users can create powerful reports and dashboards. All of the IndustrySafe Analysis Grid reports consist of separate panels for controls, configuration, tables, charts, and crosstabs. Users can manipulate the controls, creating data analysis and presentations on the fly. To access any of the analysis grid reports, log into IndustrySafe, select the related module, select Reports & Analysis, and choose the analysis grid report that you wish to view.

Definitions of the scales used for exposure and time rating are included as hyperlinks on the Qualitative Exposure Assessment form.
