Ryan is a Senior Occupational Hygienist with NorthStar Occupational Hygiene & Safety Ltd. A Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH), Registered Occupational Hygienist (ROH) and Canadian Registered Safety Professional (CRSP), Ryan has over fifteen years of experience in exposure assessment and industrial hygiene projects and continues to enjoy working with new clients and in new industries to assist in providing practical recommendations to address their occupational hygiene needs.
Being fortunate to have had a strong mentor early in his career, one of Ryan’s current highlights is being able to work with and mentor newer and less experienced future hygienists. As a co-founder of NorthStar, one of the founding principles was to build a company focused on training, developing, and retaining emerging occupational hygienists. Ryan and his co-founder have built a model that allows, and expects, senior hygienists to spend time in the field working alongside junior colleagues and providing mentorship and training.
