Abstract
The philosophy of quality control in industrial hygiene must reflect the professional goal of the industrial hygiene program, health protection through prevention of occupational diseases. Quality control's contribution to the real value of the industrial hygiene is measured in terms of its contribution to the performance, cost, or schedule of the program. Quality control is then an extension of the role of management and assures effective management of an industrial program. Incorporation of the quality control plan into the management of an industrial program will trigger timely, consistent actions, and will provide evidence of the industrial hygiene program's effectiveness not only internally but externally. The outside parties may include facility management, the workers being protected, evaluation and accreditation groups, and regulatory agencies.
