What is Occupational Hygiene?
Occupational hygiene, or Industrial hygiene as its also referred to, is the recognition, evaluation and control of risks within the working environment.
“When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it, but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind…” Lord Kelvin
Hygienists are the occupational health professionals who are focused on the prevention of worker ill health from exposure to hazardous substances.
Exposure to hazardous substances can occur in a variety of ways including inhalation, ingestion eg transferred on hands when eating or smoking; or through skin absorption.
Occupational hygiene forms the link between exposure to a hazard and the risk of illness arising from that exposure. It relies on the identification of a hazard, then the ability to quantify the risk to health from that hazard and finally, having the experience and skill to recommend appropriate measures to control the risk.
With over 30 years’ experience in occupational hygiene you can be confident that our highly trained, qualified and competent staff will be able to ensure your company's compliance with Health and Safety Regulations.

Armstrong Environmental Ltd awarded LEV contract at Hinckley Point C Nuclear Power Station
Hinckley Point C nuclear power station is a project to build a twin 1,600 MW turbine station in Somerset, England. The plant, which has a projected lifetime of 60 years, uses Uranium dioxide as a fuel element and is due to be completed by 2026.
It is hoped that, eventually, Hinkley Point C will provide 7% of the UK’s total electricity serving up to six million homes.
Armstrong Environmental Ltd have been asked to undertake both LEV Thorough Examination and Testing and an assessment of operator exposure to welding fume, for fabrications activities being carried out as part of the construction.
By law you must protect workers by controlling risks from welding fume. All welding fume can cause lung cancer, with studies showing that welders have a 52.5% higher lung cancer risk (than non-exposed) so you must put controls in place.

Ship Building Welding Fume Assessments
Armstrong Environmental have recently been undertaking welding fume assessments for a major shipbuilder on the Clyde in Glasgow.
It is estimated that 110 million workers worldwide are exposed to welding fume and with studies showing that welders have a 52.5% higher lung cancer rate (than non exposed).
Our mobile unit is the perfect base for our qualified occupational hygienists to monitor welding activites on large sites.
It is critical that firms adequately assess the risk and use appropriate controls.
