Occupational Hygiene and Environmental Monitoring

Helping Protect Your People

Health, Safety and Environmental laws require employers to identify the risks associated with all work processes. Vapours, dust, noise, radiation and hazardous substances do not always have the obvious impacts of traumatic accidents.

Exposure to occupational hygiene risks can cause serious health problems for staff exposed to them in sufficient quantities, or over an extended period of time. These include noise-induced hearing loss, cancers, allergies and asthma. Australasian Safety Services’ professional staff offer a wide range of services to help you monitor employee exposure to a wide range of workplace conditions.

Australasian Safety Services has extensive experience monitoring hygiene risks within the mining, oil and gas, aviation, maritime, transport and manufacturing industries. Australasian Safety Services professionals have the expertise to assist organisations in developing and conducting monitoring programmes to meet the needs of their specific industries and workplaces.
