- Assessments of dust and metal exposure.
- Exposure monitoring and the development of controls in response to Health & Safety Authority Improvement Notices
- Exposure assessments and developing health surveillance programmes.
- Evaluations of exposure to diesel and combustion fumes.
- Asbestos assessments.
- ‘Sick Building’ investigations.
- Assessing welding, soldering and metal processing exposures.
- Carbon monoxide, sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxide assessments.

- Solvent Exposure Assessments.
- Metal fume and particulate sampling.
- Quarry exposures – respirable dust and quartz.
- Acid mists, anions and cations.
- Isocyanates, styrene and miscellaneous organic and inorganic contaminants.

In some cases our assessment work is undertaken on a routine basis and occasionally it may be triggered by enforcement action, a workplace incident and/or compensation claim.
Our highly qualified consultants use internationally approved sampling and analytical methods to evaluate exposures. In addition, we provide guidance on the management of risks and the development of appropriate controls.
