We specialise in making sense of safety
and offer workable and proportionate advice for additive manufacture

We’ve got great experience in additive manufacture and can help you manage all aspects of your safety from air monitoring to ghost wipes of surfaces for metal particles.  We first got involved back in 2001 when polyamide powders were the only option!  Now we see aluminium (A20x / AlSi10Mg), nickel alloys (IN625 / IN718 H230 / IN939 / C263 / H282), titanium (Ti64) and stainless steel powders when supporting our clients using a range of equipment including those from EOS and Renishaw AM.

Additive Manufacturing Safety and Occupational Health

Our first exposure to additive manufacture was in 2001.  Since then we’ve acted to support a number of businesses, including Europes largest installed based of metal-based additive manufacture equipment.
Our skill set complements internal teams well with expertise in occupational health and hygiene allowing us to complete air monitoring for metal powders including nickel, aluminium and titanium and support linked biological monitoring to ensure long-term occupational health.
We can also support post-processing needs through noise monitoring, vibration assessment and risk management and more general COSHH and risk management support.


Since 1994 we’ve specialised in occupational health and occupational hygiene giving us great experience and exposure. Additive manufacture has its own special issues when we look at occupational health and hygiene.  From air surveys for metal powder exposure through to biological occupational health monitoring we can assist you in managing risk.  We can also conduct spot monitoring of the working environment to determine if metal powders are migrating through your workplace from the production to office and welfare areas.
When you engage us we bring all of our experience – call us to find out how we can help and we’ll issue you a detailed proposal within 2 days of our consultation.

ISO9001 / ISO14001 / ISO45001

We’ve implemented many systems over the years and our consultants are expert in creating systems which are appropriate and fit for purpose.  We can integrate the ISO9001, 14001 and 45001 standards to provide a truly integrated management system for your business.  All of us have worked in other roles in manufacturing giving us the insight necessary to ensure that what we produce has the added value you need whether you are doing this for the first time or updating your existing systems.


Sometimes you need extra support, be that to cover a new process, a move of premises, business expansion or the temporary absence of a key employee.
We’ve completed these projects for leading additive manufacturers to support their internal teams, call us to discuss your requirements and we will meet and issue a detailed and clear proposal setting out exactly how we could help.


Many of our clients work as the sole safety professional within their business.  With the diverse set of risks present in additive, you won’t always have all the skills you need in-house. We will work with you to support and guide you and add competence on these key risk areas.
From short sessions covering substance exposure risks through to a planned series of sessions designed to provide competence for supervisory and management teams, we’re able to make safety, make sense.

We’re always happy to meet and provide some answers followed by a clear cost proposal on how we could work together to turn safety from a worrisome burden to a integral part of your business. Contact us today to find out more.
