Workplace Safety & OHS
Workplace Safety and Occupational Hygiene
Occupational Hygiene is the anticipation, recognition, evaluation and control of hazards within the working environment. Occupational Hygiene services work to protect both employees and the communities health and well-being.
Under the workplace health and safety legislation, a risk assessment must be conducted within all working environments, these assessments must be conducted by a ‘competent person’ such as an Occupational Hygienist. An Occupational Hygienist is a scientist/engineer who conducts the monitoring of any hazards within the working environment and provides advice on how to manage these hazards. Their skills are very specialised and are essential in an environment where workplace hazards could affect the well being of employees.
