Occupational hygiene services we offer
Health hazard identification is the first step to developing an occupational hygiene program.
Hazardous chemicals are substances, mixtures and materials that carry potential health and physicochemical risks and dangers.
Dangerous goods are substances, mixtures or articles that, because of their physical, chemical (physicochemical) or acute toxicity properties, present an immediate hazard to people, property or the environment.
Our occupational hygienist can help you to evaluate the risk of heat stress in you workplace, providing you with tips to reduce the risk to your employees.
Hazardous and Toxic Waste
In the workplace, modern technology often requires the disposal of hazardous and toxic chemicals, a job that can become potentially dangerous if not carried out correctly.

What is occupational hygiene?
Occupational hygiene is generally defined as the art and science dedicated to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, communication and control of environmental stressors in, or arising from, the workplace. It’s particularly concerned with stressors that may result in injury, illness or impairment, or may affect the wellbeing of workers and members of the community.Find out more
