What is Occupational Hygiene?

When should I engage an Occupational Hygienist?

Employers, or person/s in control of a workplace have a legal duty of care to provide a safe working environment for all employees, contractors and visitors. That means employers must take reasonable care to identify actual and potential hazards in the workplace, and eliminate or control any risks posed by those hazards.

An Occupational Hygienist can help you understand your legal duties and obligations and how these translate to safe working systems for your workplace. In other words, an Occupational Hygienist can advise you on the following aspects of workplace health and safety:

  • ergonomics, the way work is organised and the layout of tools and equipment;
  • controlling risks concerning chemicals and biological factors;
  • the safe storage and handling of Dangerous Goods and Hazardous Substances; and
  • the safety aspects of plant and equipment.
