Occupational Hygiene

People can be negatively affected at the workplace by environmental influences that are unpleasant or harmful to health. The purpose of occupational hygiene services is to apply suitable measures to protect the employees from the following hazards:

  • physical hazards (e.g. noise, effects of temperature)
  • chemical hazards (e.g. pharmaceutical substances, cleaning agents)
  • biological hazards (e.g. micro-organisms in water, fungi)
  • ergonomic hazards (e.g. carrying heavy items, computer workstations)

We are pleased to advise and support you in applying suitable preventative measures. We assist you in implementing and evaluating the steps that have been planned.

We also assist you in finding out the causes for environmental influences that are harmful to health, and in working out and applying in practice the appropriate protective measures.

  • checking to see that the workplace limits are complied with (e.g. climatic parameters, concentration of contaminants, noise levels)
