Industrial hygiene has been defined as “that science and art devoted to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, and control of those environmental factors or stresses arising in or from the workplace, which may cause sickness, impaired health and well-being, or significant discomfort among workers or among the citizens of the community.”

Industrial hygienists use environmental monitoring and analytical methods to detect the extent of worker exposure and employ engineering, work practice controls, and other methods to control potential health hazards.

The work environment is a component of workplace hygiene that includes physical, chemical, biological, ergonomic, and psychological elements that may have an impact on the workforce's safety and well-being.

Occupational health has a strong emphasis on prevention and is concerned with all aspects of health and safety at work.
