Occupational hygiene consulting assists in anticipating, recognizing, evaluating and controlling harmful agents in your workplace. It’s essential to prevent overexposure to harmful agents, including chemicals (such as solvents, asbestos, carbon monoxide, silica), physical agents (such as noise and excessive heat), or biological hazards (such as moulds and bacteria).
Some signs of an occupational hygiene problem can be apparent, however, you’ll need an occupational hygienist’s expert skills to correctly identify, assess, and control these hazards, and prevent severe problems such as respiratory conditions, skin diseases, and hearing loss.
