Occupational Hygiene Monitoring

Ensure Compliance with Government Occupational Hygiene Monitoring Regulations

As a South African employer, you are charged with ensuring a safe working space for your employees to execute their duties effectively and safely. Granted, the responsibility is not only yours. It requires collaboration from your company, the government and your employees. When each party brings their part, the workplace is a safer and more hazardless environment for everyone involved in the business. This is where occupational hygiene monitoring solutions come into play.

When performing duties in industrial environments, there are always negative factors that can expose workers to hazards and dangers. While it is not always possible to eradicate every hazard that employees face in the workplace, there are ways at your disposal to limit the hazards as much as possible. With professional occupational hygiene monitoring, you can make your workplace less hazardous and safer for employees to perform their duties in.

What is Occupational Hygiene Monitoring, and How Can it Benefit Your Business?

Occupational hygiene monitoring is actually the studying of potential risks that exist in the workplace. It also recognises and evaluates potential hazards, while identifying stressors that might cause illness, injuries and unhappiness among employees. It isn’t an exact science, and each monitoring is tailored around the unique needs and scope of a business.

There are a number of categories that a business’s stressors fall under, including;

• Chemical;
• Biological;
• Ergonomic;
• Psychological; and
• Physical factors, to name a few.
