Protect workers from hazardous substances

Protecting workers exposed to hazardous chemicals


ECHA - The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is the driving force behind the regulatory authorities in implementing the EU chemicals legislation.


ECHA has published guidance for preparing a scientific report for health based exposure limits and occupational exposure limits (OELs) at the workplace.

It is a follow-up of the REACH review, improving the interface between REACH and occupational health and safety legislation. As of 2019, ECHA has started providing recommendations for occupational exposure limits (OELs) that protect workers exposed to hazardous chemicals.

We offer a wide range of environmental and biological monitoring analyses to help companies demonstrate compliance with OELs and other guidance values and to fulfil obligations under CoSHH.



IMPORTANT: Changes to our group email addresses


Government organisations are in the process of moving to a new email infrastructure which replaces the old 'Government Secure Internet' (GSI) system. 

This has resulted in a change to our Health Group's email addresses.

From now on:


HSE Testing and Monitoring customer survey 2019

 

Customer Survey Summer 2019 - thank you!

Our thanks go to everyone who responded to our latest customer survey. 

Requests were sent to those receiving reports from us during May and June.  We received lots of valuable feedback regarding the quality of our service, ease of use and good interpretation of results.

The survey also indicated that some of you have difficulties with our invoicing system; while some of the issues are outside of our control we are looking at improvements. We also offer credit card and BACS payments (with VAT-compliant receipts) as well as online ordering for some assays. 

The feedback shows that customers use our services to evaluate the efficacy of control measures and working practices and, where appropriate, to demonstrate compliance with regulations. 

Find out more about our services online, including case studies that illustrate the value of monitoring.
