Occupational Hygiene Consulting

Occupational Hygienists play a major role in preventing and reducing disease and injury in the workplace by using science and engineering to prevent ill health caused by work practices. Occupational Hygiene is a multi-disciplinary profession drawing on knowledge of toxicology, chemistry, physics, physiology, maths, and engineering to be able to assess workplace toxins such as dust, noise, vibration, fumes, particulate matter and toxic gases.

Monitoring for airborne dust in the workplace helps in the understanding of worker exposures and potential for adverse health effects. Pneumoconiosis is a lung disease caused by the inhalation of dusts that are deposited deep in the lungs causing damage.

Monitoring for airborne RCS will help ensure workers are protected and legislative requirements are met. Silicosis is a lung disease caused by inhaling unsafe levels of silica dust, usually over a period of many years.

Fit testing ensures that correctly fitting respirators worn in the workplace are providing the required level of protection. This is done by measuring the effectiveness of the seal between the respirator and the wearer’s face.

Understanding and controlling common pollutants in the indoor environment can help reduce the risk of indoor health concerns. Poor indoor air quality can be the result of the release of gases or particles, inadequate ventilation, as well as high temperature and humidity levels.

Diesel Particulate Matter (DPM) is a Group 1 carcinogen (carcinogenic to humans). Monitoring for DPM helps establish potential exposures as part of a sites risk management process.
Workplace exposures must be identified, assessed and controlled or an unacceptable risk may exist. In order to mitigate this risk, the organisation must anticipate, recognise, evaluate and control health hazards in the workplace. This is achieved through an exposure assessment program and at its core is the HRA.

Hearing protection fit testing determines how effective a hearing protection device is for an individual when worn correctly. This is typically carried out using a fit testing hardware and/or software system. Fit testing measures the noise reduction a hearing protection device provides for an individual worker.

Measuring noise levels in the workplace, including worker noise exposure, is an important part of a workplace hearing conservation and noise control program. Measuring noise levels helps identify work locations where there are noise problems and identifies workers who may be exposed to noise levels that can cause hearing loss. To assess noise levels a sound level meter (SLM – area noise) or noise dose meter (NDM – personal noise) is used.
