Hazardous Substances Risk Assessment HSE Australia

Investigation & Analysis of Hazardous Substances & Material​

Hazardous materials and substances, are found in most workplaces.
From cleaning detergent to industrial lubricant or chemical components used in the manufacturing process.
The quantity and type differ from one workplace to another. Small amounts of cleaning fluids may be kept in office kitchens or stationery cupboards. In comparison, large petrochemical sites have an extensive range of hazardous chemicals and substances to manage.
We will assist you with assessing your workplace and develop a tailored Hazardous Materials Register as well as an Emergency Plan to meet compliance.

Every workplace scenario requires a sound approach to understanding the risk potential posed to staff when managing, using and storing hazardous chemicals. Regular monitoring, investigation and analysis minimises the risk of workplace incidents occurring. Our qualified team of Occupational Hygienists can conduct air, soil and water contamination analysis in our NATA accredited laboratory to determine workplace risk exposure.

We work with government, police and private clients to investigate and determine the level of chemical residue and exposure in properties used as clandestine drug laboratories.
