specialist services

we can provide the following services in conjunction with our 'select' partners.

  • Noise Surveys

    Are your employees being exposed to excessive noise?

    The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 requires every employer to carry out a noise risk assessment where any employee is likely to be exposed to noise at or above the lower exposure action, which is 80dB(A).

    Our professional noise assessments will determine your legal obligations and accurately report on your noise levels. In addition, our consultants will provide pragmatic advice on how to best protect your staff and others, and comply with the legislation.

     

  • Vibration/ HAVS Assessments

    Hand Arm Vibration (HAV) is vibration transmitted into your hands and arms from using hand held power tools (such as grinders) or hand guided equipment (such as powered pallet trucks).

    Regular or frequent exposure can lead to permanent ill health and cause hand arm vibration syndrome (HAVS) and/or carpel tunnel syndrome. Our survey will assess vibration exposure using the latest instrumentation.

     

  • Dust/ Gas Monitoring

    Employees at work can be exposed to a wide variety of hazardous substances which can cause ill health when inhaled. Workplace monitoring surveys are designed to help employers fulfil their obligations under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health 2002 (as amended).

    In addition, the measurement of airborne contaminants will assess personal workplace exposure and verify the effectiveness of the control measures.

     

  • Asbestos Surveys

    ‘Duty Holders’ of non-domestic properties are required under legislation to locate the presence and extent of any suspected asbestos containing materials (ACM’s) in their buildings. Our team are qualified and competent to undertake asbestos testing and asbestos surveying to help clients identify possible asbestos in their buildings.

    What many people do not realise is that an asbestos survey is not sufficient on its own to meet the requirements of today’s legislation for the Duty Holder.  We can also put together an asbestos management plan for our clients and help them implement this in order to comply with the current legislation of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.

     

  • Legionella Asssessments

    Landlords and Duty Holders of commercial (and residential) premises have responsibilities for combating Legionnaires’ Disease. Legislation requires that landlords carry out risk assessments for the Legionella bacteria which cause Legionnaires’ Disease and thereafter maintain control measures to minimise the risk.

    We can arrange for a consultant to discuss your Legionella responsibilities and arrange for a risk assessment.

     

  • DSEAR assessments

    It is a requirement that all work premises undertake a risk assessment covering processes that may involve the use of materials that could cause a risk of harm to employees from fire, explosion or energetic releases.  This covers flammable gases, solvents, vapours, dusts, incompatible chemicals and self-heating (spontaneous ignition).

    We are able to arrange for a specialist consultant to support you with the risk assessment process to help you comply with the DSEAR / ATEX.

     

  • Dangerous Goods Safety Advisor

    You must have a dangerous goods safety adviser (DGSA) if you transport dangerous goods. (The DGSA is not required when goods are handled or carried at or below specified limited quantities or where the main or secondary activity is not the handling or carriage of dangerous goods).

    Our specialist team of qualified DGSA’s can provide the solution to all your dangerous goods management requirements including DGSA Training and Advice. Please contact us for more details.

We are here to help.

We offer a free consultation (on-site where possible) to assess your current position and discuss how we may assist, with no obligation.
