Occupational Hygiene Services

Effective management of occupational health risks is based on identifying the relevant workplace hazards, evaluating the risks to health, and then preventing or reducing those risks by effective control strategies. These controls can include various combinations of administrative and physical / engineering controls

I provide a full spectrum of occupational hygiene services, including:

  • Exposure monitoring
    • Expert exposure assessments for toxic metals, organic dusts, solvents, fumes and gases etc.
    • Noise measurement and vibration assessments
  • COSHH assessments and chemical safety
  • Environmental surveys for indoor air quality, thermal stress, lighting
  • Local exhaust ventilation systems
    • Design criteria
    • Commissioning surveys
    • Statutory thorough examination and testing
  • Disease and ill-health investigations

I also carry out occupational health audits, which are a status check on your compliance with occupational health management practices, relevant to your operations.

I can also assist you with full hazard control programmes e.g. for

  • Respiratory protection

  • Asthma prevention
  • Personal protective equipment

All survey reports contain a prioritised action plan, enabling you to understand the actions required to comply with the law, and also which are needed to achieve best practice.
