Occupational Hygiene

Occupational Hygiene is the science of identifying potential exposures and hazards in the workplace that could cause health impacts, disease or discomfort.

Our team can evaluate the extent of risk due to these hazards or agents, and control those risks to prevent ill-health in both the short term and long term.


SLR provides the highest level of service to our clients with results which are both scientifically rigorous but also practical to today’s business and community needs.

The Occupational Health & Hygiene team consists of a diverse range of science and engineering specialists to complement client needs in occupational hygiene, health and safety, toxicology, and environmental and human health risk assessment. Covering issues relating to worker health, meeting community expectations, or ensuring regulatory compliance.
