Occupational Hygiene Survey Checklist

By Author: James Breslin
Total Articles: 7

An Occupational Hygiene Survey is required to ensure that minimum hygiene and safety standards are implemented at the workplace.

Generally, this involves a credentialed auditor taking a walk through the entire work premises along with a designated officer or representative of the business.

The Occupational Hygiene Survey involves detection of possible health and safety hazards in the working environment. It makes sense for the businesses to regularly conduct such surveys as it not only minimizes risks to employees; it also prevents business owners from being sued for not following regulations.

An Occupational Hygiene Survey is conducted by an occupational hygienist; i.e. a scientist or engineer suitably credentialed to monitor and detect workplace hazards including hazards from bad or poor air quality at the workplace, hazards due to use or working with asbestos, mould, chemical vapours, solid or liquid chemicals, hazards due to poor lightning, seating or safety measures, etc.

Service providers such as JMBEC specialize in providing Occupational Hygiene Survey that covers all work areas including:

Workplace Noise
Workplace Lighting
Workplace Air Quality and Ventilation
Work area Thermal comfort (Heat and cold)
Workplace Dust and Vapour
Proximity to and use of Hazardous Chemical Substances
Working with Lead or presence of lead at the workplace
Working with or presence of Asbestos at the workplace
Workplace Ergonomics and,
Biological Hazards

Your organisation will receive a JMBEC professional, Occupational Hygiene Survey checklist and report details of the survey findings and recommendations. All JMBEC surveys are conducted by Certified Occupational Hygienist (COH) who have years of experience in detecting occupational hazards. All the JMBEC ASBESTOS MANAGEMENT are certified by the Australian Institute of Occupational Hygienists (AIOH) - an internationally recognised organisation.

The Occupational Hygiene Survey Checklist includes conclusions and recommendations as to safety standards and procedures that are followed at the workplace. The conclusions and recommendations indicate whether safely and hygiene are lacking or inadequate and whether the workplace could harm employee health.

The Occupational Hygienist can provide his or her personal Asbestos Management Plan as to significance of risk if any. The Occupational Hygienist will also draw conclusions as to the adequacy of safety controls and provide recommendations to strengthen weak areas if any.

Recommendations arising from regulatory requirements will reference the relevant Australian safety rules and regulations.
