"We care, so we try a little harder"

We are involved in the anticipation, recognition, evaluation and control of occupational health hazards.

We offer flexible learning

We are involved in the anticipation, recognition, evaluation and control of occupational health hazards. The Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSAct) places the onus on employers to ensure that the working environment is safe and without risks to the health of their employees.

In order to accomplish this, employers must, through the services of a competent person, assess the exposure of their employees to hazardous environmental conditions in the workplace.

Where an assessment indicates an on-going risk from exposure, these exposures must be measured and the results compared to prescribed standards. Steps must then be taken to comply with the provisions of the OHSAct. This process, known as monitoring, must be performed or verified by an Approved Inspection Authority.
