Occupational Hygiene Services

COVID 19 Services & Support


Risk assessment, hazard Identification & risk management

With Employers now fully focused putting correct procedures in place to limit exposure to staff and customers to COVID 19, ensuring a proper occupational hygiene assessment is more important than ever.

 

As Social distancing has created workplace issues that none of us could have envisaged even just a few months ago, our 20 years expertise in occupational hygiene allows us to expertly assist organisations at this time, we can expertly guide and support, conduct risk assessments and assist you in managing exposure and adopting preventative methodologies, design in a manner that will work best for your company’s specific requirements.

 

In basic terms occupational hygiene is about the understanding of potential hazards and risks in the workplace, evaluating the associated levels of risk and putting plans in place to control potential health hazards to ensure worker health and well-being is protected. There are many aspects to occupational hygiene services, and today the most important work we do is in determining and estimating potential or actual exposures to hazards.

 - Hazard Identification & Risk Assessments

 - Chemical Safety & Exposure Monitoring

 - Biological Agents Assessments

 - Air Quality Monitoring

 - Ergonomic Assessments

 - Work from Home Assessments

 - Workplace Safety Statements
