Air Quality

The air in which we breath plays a crucial role in the short and long-term health and wellbeing of all humans.

  • Airborne fibre (asbestos)
  • Confined space testing
  • Dust, fumes and mists
  • Gases and vapours
  • Diesel particulates
  • Indoor air quality
  • Odour investigations
  • Micro-organisms (mould/bacteria)

Hazardous Substances

Hazardous substances can be particularly dangerous to our health. In some organisations, the risk escalates because some substances in the workplace are scientifically proven to be carcinogenic (cancer-causing).

  • Hazmat surveys (Asbestos, PCB’s, Lead Paint, Synthetic Mineral Fibre, Ozone Depleting Substances)
  • Asbestos in soils
  • Dangerous goods
  • Compliance audits
  • Risk Management

Noise & Vibration

Risks associated with noise pollution and vibration are more common than many people believe. We undertake surveys and assessments in these areas.

  • Noise monitoring
  • Noise surveys

Clandestine Drug Labs

Clandestine chemistry is chemistry carried out in secret, and particularly in illegal drug laboratories. Many of these drug labs are run by gangs or organised crime intending to produce for distribution on the black market.
