Health at work is primarily achieved by identifying those factors at work which could contribute to ill-health, assessing the risks associated with them and then taking steps to reduce those risks. Workplaces have many visible and hidden hazards. The key categories are:

  • Chemicals (dust and vapours)
  • Physical (heat, light, noise, radiation, posture and motion)
  • Biological (bacteria and viruses etc)

Occupational hygiene anticipates, recognises, evaluates and controls these occupational health hazards. The primary objectives are to protect the wellbeing of workers and to safeguard the community at large. We are able to offer the following services:

  • Dust and/or chemicals monitoring
  • Ergonomic assessments
  • Respirator fit testing
