Occupational Hygiene

JTA Occupational Hygienists

Occupational hygiene is the scientific discipline, concerning the recognition, assessment and control of health risks from workplace exposures to hazards such as chemicals, dusts, fumes, noise, vibration and extreme temperatures. Occupational Hygienists anticipate, recognize and assess real and potential hazards.

Every workplace, no matter how small or large nor how tidy or messy, has the potential to have numerous unidentified hazards that may cause accidents, sickness, impaired health or significant discomfort.

There are various methods we employ in a JTA occupational hygiene assessment to identify and assess the risks. The first step is a Qualitative Assessment (Walk through Survey) to observe, interview and do basic measurements to determine:

The nature of the hazard (chemical, physical or biological)
Whether the hazard produces acute or chronic health effects
Whether exposure is continuous, intermittent or seasonal
The level of exposure
The number of staff engaged in tasks where there is potential exposure

If a significant risk/s is identified, Quantitative Monitoring strategies are employed to accurately measure the level of the hazard in order to allow us to recommend the most appropriate management plan.

All of our Occupational Hygienists are professionals who have extensive experience and are certified Occupational Hygienists through the Australian Institute of Occupational Hygienists (AIOH).

JTA’s team of occupational hygienists service all Australian cities including Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Darwin and Hobart, also now servicing New Zealand.
