Over the years we have been participating on a number of hazard surveys in order to identify safety or environmental hazards in the working environment. In the scope of our surveys safety hazards are usually related to tools, processes and personal protective equipment. Environmental hazards on the other hand typically involve the presence of toxic substances, noise, vibration, ionizing radiation and elevated temperature. We can carry out comprehensive hazards site surveys to identify many site specific hazards.
We specialise in identification and measurements of hazards such as:
Airborne toxic substances are present in the workplace in the form of dust (silica dust), fumes welding fumes), gases (carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, sulphur dioxide), mists (electroplating chromium mists), vapours (volatiles), low-high oxygen and many other toxic substances. Some of these substances can be measured and compared to safe exposure limits as guided by HSE or OSHA. Many of these substances cannot be easily detected and measured without using sophisticated equipment operated by highly trained technicians.
We use a variety of measurement and sample collection techniques which allow us to identify the presence of hazardous materials on live or decommissioned sites, quantify the magnitude and extent of the contaminating.
In consultation with our clients, we prepare hazards assessment plans, identify site specific hazard threshold based on the regulatory requirements and site uses and prepare clear and objective site assessment strategy.
This multi-layer assessment approach help us to successfully evaluate complex sites with multiple hazards such as decommissioned chemical works and laboratory facilities, Ride damage pharmaceutical production sites, hospitals, school and residential properties.
Holmewood House School
Post-remediation verification of lead dust cleaning operatives. The site's shooting range for surveys for the presence of residual lead dust to verify the effectiveness and diligence of a lead dust cleaning contractor.
Building lead contamination surveys with the aim to identify and quantify the extent of lead dust contamination in the building. We have performed air quality reassurance testing and bulk sample collection throughout the site to evaluate the exposure levels and risk to the building occupants.
Kier Construction Ltd
Lead survey of an abandoned historically important school building in Sheffield. The building was being re-developed into and new nursery school with the aim to preserve many original features.
North Lindsey College
Lead survey to part one block at North Lyndsey College prior redevelopment into the new teaching block. The survey team utilised XRF techniques to pinpoint suspected materials and bulk sampling techniques to collect samples for lead content analysis.
Alfred Bagnall & Sons
Lead exposure monitoring during the renovation of Nottingham main train station. We were appointed to carry our reassurance testing to safeguard the public in the exposed areas and to carry our occupational exposure monitoring of lead removal operatives
Asbestos Consultants Europe Ltd
Lead exposure monitoring during lead removal operation. The project was carried out on site and our company provided continuous lead monitoring on site to ensure the safety of the public and lead removal operatives.
Partial building lead surevy before re-development of a dated building. the building was extensively surveyed using XRF surveying methods and suspected materials were quantified using traditional bulk sampling method.
PHH Environmental Ltd
Intrusive lead survey for the presence of lead-containing materials on this old building in the heart of Plymouth town center. The building was being redeveloped into new student accommodation block.
Lead survey to part of the Linac building at Torquay Hospital prior to redevelopment of exisitng building into a new hospital wing. Paqrtial site surveys utilising bulk and XRF surveying methods.
Kier Construction Ltd
Lead surveys of the national house building in Exeter prior development of the site into new state fo the art student accommodation complex. Bulk lead sampling methods along with the onsite XRF analysis were used to survey this site.
