Occupational Health and Hygiene

[vc_row type=”grid”][vc_column dp_animation=””]

From welding fumes to solvent vapours and from wood dust to metal powders in additive manufacturing. We know how to manage occupational health and hygiene.

[vc_column_text dp_animation=””]

Since 1994 we have specialised in occupational health and hygiene. We are one of only three international organisations to have been selected by The British Museum to support them under a framework agreement.

Rely on us to provide considered and appropriate risk management to ensure that you are covering both health and safety in your organisation. See more information on teh reclassification of mild steel welding fume to a carcinogen here; Welding Fume Blog

SAMPLING FOR
AIRBORNE DUST, VAPOUR, FUME OR PARTICULATE

[vc_column_text dp_animation=””]We have carried out hundreds (if not thousands) of occupational health & hygiene sampling programmes.  From isocyanate exposure through to monitoring in aerospace for tributyl phosphate or metal powders for additive manufacturing (nickel superalloys, aluminium and titanium) we can cover all of your sampling needs and integrate this programme with other health or safety support.  We’d love to hear from you and will quickly respond with a clear cost proposal.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”grid”][vc_column dp_animation=””][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”grid”][vc_column width=”1/6″ dp_animation=””][dp_icon style=”” icon_size=”80″ icon_color=”#3f98d9″ alignment=”right” icon=”Default-user4″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”4/6″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner]

HEALTH
SURVEILLANCE

[vc_column_text dp_animation=””]

Health surveillance is required under regulation 11 of COSHH and is an area which we correctly identified in our White Paper on FFI as a key issue for enforcement. Health surveillance doesn’t need to be difficult or complicated, we can offer a range of urine and blood tests covering lead and isocyanate exposure for example.  But we can also give your staff the necessary skills and knowledge to carry out checks for dermatitis and other health conditions.
Whether you have a range of health requirements or you are a small business simply wishing to do the best by your staff, we can help – call us on 01453 800100 for more information.

OCCUPATION
HEALTH MANAGEMENT

[vc_column_text dp_animation=””]For larger businesses we can offer occupational health management services with an on-site member of staff to perform checks plus off-line support for HR and other teams. By integrating this support with our safety, quality and environmental teams we can offer a total solution for management.  Contact us to arrange a consultation using the links above or request a call back and we’ll be in touch.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”grid”][vc_column dp_animation=””][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”grid”][vc_column width=”1/6″ dp_animation=””][dp_icon style=”” icon_size=”80″ icon_color=”#3f98d9″ alignment=”right” icon=”Default-user4″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”4/6″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner]

NOISE
& VIBRATION

[vc_column_text dp_animation=””]We have carried out hundreds of noise exposure surveys. We use a range fo equipment to capture accurate exposure data.

COSHH RISK
ASSESSMENT

[vc_column_text dp_animation=””]COSHH risk assessment can be a long and laborious process for many of our clients.  It’s also an area in which some colleagues feel that a helping hand or some oversight from an experienced occupational hygienist is of value. We will work alongside you to either carry out assessments or simply to sanity check your own conclusions.

We also carry out COSHH training sessions giving your internal teams the skills and knowledge necessary for them to effectively manage COSHH risk themselves, ask us to call you back if you’d like to know more.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”grid”][vc_column dp_animation=””][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”grid”][vc_column][vc_column_text]We hope that you’ve found some answers in our information above.
