Michael P Menz, CIH, CHMM


Michael P Menz, CIH, CHMM founded Indoor Environmental Concepts (IEC) in 2011, which for a time held his own name, Menz Industrial Hygiene Services. Over the years, his core focus has been professional excellence and mastery in the field, building a company that has become one of the region’s leaders in industrial hygiene and environmental consulting. Providing top level indoor environmental quality evaluations (IEQ), asbestos investigations, silica exposure assessments and mercury in rubberized gymnasium flooring management are just a number of the services he manages regularly. Mike does more than oversee and lead the team projects; he is hands on from start to finish. He performs and is responsible for all aspects of the work to include preparation of sampling strategy and sample result interpretation for exposure assessments, lead-based paint consultation and clearance dust examination, and preparing universal hazardous waste inventories.

Key to Michael’s  expertise is his commitment to training and on-going education. His certifications speak for themselves as he is one of only a handful of American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH) Certified Industrial Hygienist within the MidAtlantic region. The licensed EPA/Pennsylvania Asbestos Building Inspector and Pennsylvania Management Planner is an Institute of Hazardous Materials Management (IHMM) Certified Hazardous Material Manager and Pennsylvania Certified Asbestos, Lead, and Hazardous Waste Operations Instructor. He is also a trained  Radiation Safety Officer with DOT Certification and EPA RRP Lead Renovator and Dust Sampling Technician. Certifications aside, Michael has countless hours of skills training across the industry spectrum from Asbestos Project Design and Asbestos Building Inspection and Management Planner at Temple University to Hazardous Waste Management and Mold and Moisture Remediation at Rutgers University Cook College to 40-Hour Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Training. In 2022, he  was named the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) primary representative to the ASTM D22.08 Committee on the topic of Assessment, Sampling, and Analysis of Microorganisms for the development of Consensus Standards. . He is currently technical contact for the re-issuing of ATSM Standard D7338-14 Standard Guide for the Assessment of Fungal Growth in Buildings.


Michael is a well-respected professional in the industry and one who actively shares his expertise through writing and presentations. This includes a feature article on indoor air concerns in Today’s Facility Manager.  A regular at many of the regional and national industry conferences, Mike has been a presenter at the Environmental Information Association (EIA) National Conference each year from 2021-2023, covering Asbestos Inspections and Mold Assessments Involving Confined Space Entry, De-Regulation of Asbestos Floor Tile Removal Using Dry-Ice and Mercury in Rubberized Flooring, a topic he also spoke on at the American Industrial Hygiene Conference & Expo (AIHce) in May 2020. He has also presented at the New Jersey Education Association (NJEA) Convention on Mitigating Emerging Hazards in November 2019 and the Pennsylvania Governor’s Safety Conference on silica related issues in October 2018.
