What Is Occupational Hygiene?
Occupational Hygiene is a science and engineering discipline dedicated to the measure and then implementation of control strategies related to worker risk related to exposure of hazards. It aims to understand risks and promote safe working conditions and practices.
Our Occupational Hygienist can assist you in providing a safe workplace environment and enable you to comply with OH&S legislative requirements and regulations.
We predominantly operate within the biological and chemical hazard categories of biological and chemical, covering noise, inhalable and respirable air pollution (asbestos, gaseous & particulate), electromagnetic radiation, heat stress and hazardous chemical exposure. We implement programs to monitor, quantify and report in terms of compliance with accepted exposure limits.
