Our qualified staff of Certified Industrial Hygienists and occupational health specialists have extensive experience detecting hazards, monitoring exposures, evaluating risks, and formulating measures to correct problems. Terracon has an established reputation as one of the strongest and most responsive IH services providers in the country, based on decades of experience and a wide variety of projects ranging from individual employee exposure evaluations to community-wide health research projects.
