Occupational hygiene and asbestos
Occupational hygiene deals with the entire range of workplace hazards that might cause injury or illness. There are five main categories of hazard that occupational hygienists deal with: biological, chemical, physical, ergonomic, and psychosocial.
While generalist occupational hygienists may have some experience with asbestos, we recommend engaging specialist asbestos hygienists where an asbestos issue is known or suspected. Asbestos is a specialty in itself – it comes in many different forms, is found in many different places, and requires a number of different approaches.
