Protect Your Business from Potential Risk with Occupational Hygiene Monitoring Services
Occupational hygiene programmes are typically designed to safeguard and promote the health and safety of workers, the public, and the surrounding environment from hazards and/or risks that can occur as a result of industrial activities and processes. Their main purpose is to prevent injury and illness instead of waiting for harm to become evident and for belated treatment to be required.
Occupational hygiene monitoring is used to ensure that measures to protect employees and the public from risks are actually effective. This is done through medical surveillance aimed at early detection of deteriorating health. The type of medical exams and tests carried out will be determined by the nature of the risks that employees are faced with.
Monitoring employee health is one part of the process and the second part is workplace monitoring. The practice of occupational hygiene monitoring requires the expertise of industry professionals who visit the business premises in order to assess the overall effectiveness of the procedures that are in place; these include work practices, engineering processes, protective equipment and processes, and provision of health and safety equipment.
The health and safety processes that are then set in place are determined by the operations performed and the type of chemicals, machinery, equipment, and various hazards involved. Humans can be exposed to a variety of physical hazards, which includes noise, heat, vibration, radiation, chemicals, and repetitive movement, all of which may have a negative impact on health.
We are experts in the industry. We have handled the assessment of various industrial set-ups, implemented safety and health procedures, and continued to monitor health and hygiene thereafter for many businesses in South Africa. Our professional health and hygiene monitoring services are focused on the following: health risks, noise monitoring, hazardous chemical substances, asbestos, indoor air quality, thermal stress, ergonomics, illumination, chemical compatibility, ventilation, vibration, and hazardous biological sampling.
