Evaluating and solving your workplace health issues

Workplace issues can have significant impacts on workers’ health, regardless of the business or industry in which they work. Typically, such issues include:

Indoor air quality

As the built environment becomes more enclosed and more complex the number of incidents associated with ill-health and discomfort within the workplace have increased.

Exova has extensive experience of working within indoor environments, measuring a wide range of parameters which may cause health issues. Our experts ensure minimal disruption to our customers' operations and are always undertaken with sensitivity and discretion.

Lighting

Inadequate or poorly design lighting can cause immediate safety issues but also results in health problems, such as eye strain and headaches.

Exova conducts lighting surveys in accordance with guidance published by the Health and Safety Executive in ‘HSG38: Lighting at Work’ and by The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) in ‘Lighting Guide 1: The Industrial Environment’.

Technical reports compare lighting levels with guidelines and recommend actions to improve the lighting situation where necessary.

Thermal comfort

Issues with moderate thermal comfort in the working environment are largely subjective but can lead to problems with productivity and morale.

Exova has experienced occupational hygienists who can measure and assess the thermal conditions in your workplace to determine the level of comfort.

Workplace design

Poor workplace design can cause a range of difficulties for workers, including manual handling injuries, repetitive strain injuries, upper limb disorders and back/neck problems from poor posture.

Exova have occupational hygiene specialists who are able to carry out a number of ergonomic based assessments on work tasks and working stations relating to manual handling, Display Screen Equipment (DSE) and ergonomics.

Technical assessment reports are provided along with practical advice on appropriate remedial measures.

Are you managing hazards in the workplace?

Exova occupational hygiene staff are members of the British Occupational Hygiene Society.
