The checklist is designed to capture a point-in-time picture of industrial hygiene programs at a worksite. It can be used by supervisors, Joint Health and Safety Committees or health and safety departments. The checklist can be used anytime, but it is recommended to revisit the checklist if a new operation sets up or significant changes occur in operations or procedures.
The document is divided into categories based on common worksite health hazards. References to legislation and work practices are provided within the checklist.
