Occupational Hygiene Overview

Occupational Hygiene plays a primary role in the protection of employees’ health.  Environmental Compliance Ltd can assist businesses in the assessment and control of exposure of employees to hazardous chemicals and physical agents.  This includes undertaking measurement surveys, interpreting the data and advising on the best methods of control.

Using chemicals or other hazardous substances at work can put people’s health at risk, so the law requires employers to control exposure to hazardous substances to prevent ill health.  You have to protect both employees and others who may be exposed, by complying with the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2004 (COSHH) (as amended) and are required to:

  • Make an assessment of the risks
  • Decide what precautions are needed, where required
  • Prevent or adequately control exposure
  • Ensure that control measures are used and maintained
  • Monitor the exposure
  • Carry out appropriate health surveillance
  • Prepare plans and procedures to deal with accidents, incidents and emergencies
  • Ensure employees are properly informed, trained and supervised.
