FAQ

What is occupational hygiene?

Occupational Hygiene is the science behind workplace health and safety. Occupational hygienists are able to:

  • Anticipate and recognise how a workplace hazard may affect or impact on the body
  • Evaluate the workplace hazard through measurement
  • Recommend controls based on the hazard and  thus provide solutions for protection
