Evaluating and controlling chemical, physical and biological agents in the workplace and the community

Like Ventia, our clients value the health and safety of their people and the communities in which they work. So we’re proud that they trust our Occupational Health and Hygiene team to evaluate and control a variety of chemical, physical and biological agents that impact human health. They know that our innovative solutions to manage health risks are quantifiable, cost-effective and fit-for-purpose.

Our specialist team identifies hazards and their associated risks during the project design phase, and then selects and designs risk control methods that will significantly reduce the likelihood of adverse health outcomes.
