Occupational Hygiene

With the vast array of construction, infrastructure and industries currently occurring and operating throughout Australia and New Zealand, acute site/situational specific health risks exist to workers.

Occupational hygiene is focused on the evaluation and control of the risks which may result in injury or illness of a worker throughout their working life from exposure to noise, hazardous substances or chemicals. Assessments can assist employers in making the correct decisions in terms of the implementation of suitable control measures needed for the workplace to reduce exposure to workers.
