of Environmental & Occupational Exposures to Human Health Hazards &
of Adverse Human Health Effects
| || |
HLM Consultants' experience in evaluating
exposures to human health hazards, like chemical toxicants, in environmental and
occupational settings enables us to identify and characterize chemical or physical
hazard exposures and effects suspected |
on the basis of medical, chemical,
or industrial hygiene data or alleged by concerned citizens, employees, or litigants.
We assess allegations of adverse health effects resulting from exposures to hazards
to determine whether the effects are, in fact, present and, if so, whether they
are causally related to hazard exposures. Below are listed some of the programs
we typically undertake. For more information please contact
- Assess the toxicity of materials.
- Design and implement
medical and biologic sampling and analysis.
and implement medical monitoring or surveillance programs.
and implement environmental and workplace sampling and analysis for hazards.
- Review worker
medical or health and safety programs to assure effectiveness and compliance with
environmental monitoring and industrial hygiene programs and assist engineers
in developing remedial measure.
potentially exposed or affected individuals and review medical records to determine
whether symptoms, signs, and other findings are consistent with effects of the
hazards in question.
medical and toxicological advice needed for emergency response to releases of
hazardous materials and develop medical emergency response programs.
- Design and conduct
epidemiological studies to determine whether an unusual frequency of diseases
or injuries is present or whether there is a causal connection between an exposure
and an unusual occurrence of a disease or injury.

health complaints, ergonomic or cumulative trauma disorders, or individual cases
or clusters of workplace-related health problems.
