COVID-19 Related Certified Industrial Hygienist Services

Studies still aren’t in agreement on how long COVID-19 can survive on surfaces or in the air, though viable virus has been found after 72 hours on a number of surfaces. Parts of the virus have even been found on cruise ships 17 days post occupancy. EHS-International, Inc. is offering our CIH Certified Industrial Hygienist services for review of effective cleaning products, cleaning methods, and we even offer surface sampling for COVID-19 to ensure surfaces are fully disinfected. These services are derived from CDC and WHO guidelines, and are already helping some of our clients reassure their staff and clientele. If you need assistance please email us at to have one of our Certified Industrial Hygienists contact you.

EHSI Joins SoundEarth Strategies

EHS-International, Inc. (EHSI) is pleased to announce that our firm has been acquired by SoundEarth Strategies, Inc. (SoundEarth). This new partnership will allow EHSI to expand our service offerings and grow into new market sectors.

EHSI will continue to operate just as we have for the past 23 years. There will be no change in staff or how our company operates. We will operate as a separate entity from SoundEarth and continue to operate as EHS-International, Inc. from our Seattle office.

The biggest change is that with this acquisition EHSI will graduate from the minority disadvantaged program. However, EHSI will continue to be a small business.

We are excited to be part of the SoundEarth family of companies.
