Industrial Hygiene is the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, control and prevention of hazards from work that may result in injury, illness, or affect the well-being of workers. These hazards or stressors are typically divided into the categories biological, chemical, physical, ergonomic and psychosocial. We are here to protecting and enhancing the health and safety of people at work, minimize exposures through the implementation of controls.
Chemical Health Risk Assessment (CHRA)
Occupational Hygiene Monitoring
Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) Inspection
The CHRA is an assessment that has to be conducted by the employer arising from the use, handling, storage or transportation of chemicals hazardous to health in their workplace as required by the Occupational Safety and Health (Use and Standard of Exposure of Chemicals Hazardous to Health) Regulation 2000.
Occupational Hygiene Monitoring also known as exposure monitoring is a process of evaluating and documenting employee potential exposures to biological, chemical and physical hazards. Monitoring can be qualitative, semi-quantitative or quantitative.
Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) Inspection is an engineering system designed to reduce employee exposure to airborne contaminants (dust, mist, fume, vapour, gas) in the workplace by capturing the emission at source and transporting it to a safe emission point or to a filter / scrubber.
Noise Exposure Monitoring
Indoor Air Quantity (IAQ) Monitoring
A dosimeter is like a sound level meter except that i stores sound level measurements and integrates these measurements over time, providing an average noise exposure reading for a given period of time, such as an 8-hour workday.
A healthy indoor air environment is one that maintains the comfort, health and wellbeing of the occupants. Air quality is a high priority; employers, building owners and operators are required by law to provide a safe workplace environment for employees, tenants, and visitor.
