As a Colden Industrial Hygienist, Clint Smith provides industrial hygiene (IH) exposure assessments, indoor environment quality surveys, and environmental health compliance evaluations and recommendations for a wide range of clients. Clint has extensive experience in the evaluation of industrial and community noise, having recently completed business wide noise dosimetry evaluations from coast to coast for 20 heavy and light industrial sites, along with a comprehensive community noise evaluation in a 126 megawatt wind turbine project. Clint has also completed several comprehensive ventilation assessments involving industrial and laboratory environments requiring consideration for a balance between health and safety and energy conservation parameters. Clint has also recently developed an in depth knowledge of the health and safety challenges facing the nanotechnology research and production sector by developing a nanomaterial safety management program and conducting industrial hygiene risk assessments in these facilities.
Mr. Smith holds a Master of Science degree from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell, where he concentrated in Occupational and Environmental Hygiene (OEH). He earned a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science and policy from Clarkson University. While at UMass-Lowell, he conducted research on perimeter air monitoring and worker respiratory protection during the remediation of former manufactured gas plant (MGP) sites. The research also included analyzing the effect of factors such as wind speed, temperature, and relative humidity on airborne stressors at the downwind perimeter of the site.
Mr. Smith is a Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) and a Certified Safety Professional (CSP) . He is also a member of the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) Nanotechnology Working Group. He completed the OSHA 10-hour construction safety training, as well as the OSHA Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) supervisor training course.
Mr. Smith began his research at Clarkson University measuring the concentration of two compounds emitted by common household air fresheners and performing the sample analysis through the use of gas chromatography/mass spectrometry.
