We can provide workplace exposure surveys to help you show compliance with Workplace Exposure Limits (EH40) or help you deal with specific COSHH related issues as they arise.

We deliver specialist workplace solutions to help you comply with internal and external regulations, or deal with specific COSHH related issues as they arise.

Our vast experience in industry has taught us how to identify and rectify workplace problems related to chemicals, dust, fumes, vapours, gases and fibres to protect your employees’ wellbeing and your business’ performance.

We are also here to help if you need reactive rather than preventative COSHH advice. For example, you may have received a complaint from an employee or their union representative or you need to comply with an Improvement Notice or Prohibition Notice from the HSE. If you are facing any situation that needs an immediate response, we can guide you through the steps you should be taking.

From a legislative perspective we can help you to ensure your premises are fully compliant with legislation such as the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002, the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 and the Control of Lead at Work Regulations 2002.
