Workplace exposure monitoring is a practical way of assessing potential hazards and quantifying any associated risks.

Our qualified occupational hygiene specialists can provide a comprehensive evaluation of your working environment. We can help by:

  • Carrying out Workplace Air Monitoring  and indoor air quality surveys to assess airborne contaminants

  • Undertaking Biological Monitoring to determine chemical exposure

  • Compiling a suitable COSHH risk assessment inline with current regulations

  • Conducting Statutory Inspection and Testing of LEV systems

  • Undertaking Workplace Noise Assessment and Measurement

  • Carrying out Hand-arm and Whole-body Vibration assessment and measurement.

  • Assessing and measuring Electromagnetic Fields

  • Studying the Thermal Environment, evaluating risk from exposure.

  • Implementing a Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) Face Fit Testing programme.

  • Evaluating the effectiveness of existing control measures

  • Conducting statutory inspection and testing of LEV systems

  • Creating a thorough report, detailing observations and results

  • Providing specific recommendations and constructing a detailed plan of action.​

WORKPLACE EXPOSURE MONITORING & ASSESSMENT

CHEMICAL

Chemical agents are present in most workplaces and should be measured to support any subsequent risk assessments. Routes of exposure to chemical agents are by Inhalation, Ingestion, Injection and Absorption and can be monitored using specific monitoring techniques. 

 

 

  • Chemical exposure is legislated by the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002, whereby substance exposures should be reduced to a suitable level to prevent work related ill health.

 

  • Workplace exposure limits have been set by the HSE and can be found in EH40/2005, along with any Biological Monitoring Guidance values. To quantify exposures, workplace air monitoring or biological sampling is carried out.

  • Occupational Hygienists Specialise in workplace air monitoring and biological sampling can carry out a range of approved sampling techniques to determine the levels of exposure to substances hazardous to health, providing technical support throughout the delivery of the service. 

The term physical agent refers to sources of energy that may cause chronic or acute injury or disease through exposure.

Examples of physical agents include Noise, Vibration, Thermal Environments and Electromagnetic Fields.

 

 

  • Competent to undergo measurement and assessment of physical agents, able to support your business by using advanced measuring equipment to quantify the risks associated. 

  • Determining the level of risk associated with specific processes allows for the identification of a potential risk to health of which can be controlled using suitable and sufficient control mechanisms and techniques. 

  • An assessment of the workplace will be carried out by competent assessors who are qualified in the relevant occupational hygiene disciplines. We will provide unlimited support to you and your business helping you reduce risk associated with the measured exposures.

Biological agents are widely found in the natural environment and as a result found in many work sectors. They include bacteria, viruses, fungi (including yeasts and moulds). The majority of these agents are harmless however some may have potential to cause ill health.

 

  • Usually relatable to the suitability of general indoor air quality, exposure monitoring can be carried out to detect such derivatives.

 

  • Conclusions and recommendations can be drawn from the investigations with the intention of improving the working environment and its air quality. 

  • Often biological agents are over looked when carrying out assessments of risk and indoor air quality assessments.

 

  • Many businesses continue to operate without taking into consideration hazards such as mould, bacteria, fungi and other biological derivatives often present in office areas, external buildings or during specific processes. Investigations are advised.
