Occupational Hygiene

Businesses have a duty under legislation to ensure, as far as is reasonably practicable, that their staff and other stakeholders are not exposed to any health and safety risks that may arise from the nature of their business.

Occupational Hygiene is the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, control and prevention of hazards from work that may result in injury, illness, or affect the wellbeing of workers.

Greencap utilises expertise in science and engineering to prevent ill health caused by physical and chemical hazards in the working environment, helping PCBUs and workers to understand the risks and improve working conditions and working practices.

Greencap's multidisciplinary approach is built on having consultants with a broad and solid foundation of knowledge across all these disciplines and more with qualifications and accreditations recognised by the Australia Institute of Occupational Hygiene (AIOH) council.

This includes Certified Occupational Hygienists (COH) and "Full" AIOH members. Earning the designation of COH is recognition of the highest level of professional expertise by the AIOH and international agencies and ensures you are getting the services of a recognised and competent professional.
