Occupational Hygiene

Airborne Contaminant Assessment

Our hygienists are able to assist you identify and evaluate your workplace airborne contaminant hazards, including dusts, vapours, gases, welding fumes and diesel particulates. All monitoring is performed to Australian Standards and allows you to meet your legislative requirements to ensure your workers exposure to airborne contaminants is effectively risk assessed and controlled.

Noise Exposure

Permanent hearing damage can result from exposure to a very loud noise for a short time or prolonged/repeated exposure to moderately loud noise. The cumulative and non-linear nature of hearing loss due to noise exposure means that this risk can increase significantly after brief periods of exposure throughout a work day or shift. HSR Consulting hygienists use intrinsically safe personal dosimeters and Class 1 integrating sound level meters to identify and help you control workplace noise exposures.

PPE Fit Testing

We provide Quantitative Fit testing of both respirators and ear protection, which is becoming increasingly mandatory across work sites and industries throughout Australia. Providing workers with PPE without ensuring they have correct protection could leave employers open to future litigation, and Australian standards now call for a Respiratory Protection Program (of which Fit testing is an important part).
