Occupational Health and Safety

OBJECTIVES

  • Design and manage occupational health monitoring programs for specific hazards and exposure conditions
  • Highlight required improvements to control exposure (equipment, systems, and on the individual)

TECHNIQUES

  • Physical agents monitoring (noise, light, temperature, and vibration)
  • Chemical agents
  • Other environmental monitoring (water quality, explosive atmospheres)

BENEFITS

  • Cost / effective solutions through partnerships with certified laboratories
  • Follow internationally recognized methodologies
  • Actions agreed with the management team and based on risk assessment

Ergonomics

OBJECTIVES

  • Evaluate ergonomic hazards within the workplace, identify issues
  • Resolve ergonomic challenges, combining infrastructure, systems, people
  • Incorporate ergonomic risk factors into design & planning stages

TECHNIQUES

  • Detailed reviews of ergonomic performance within the work-place
  • Apply internationally-recognized ergonomic risk assessment methodologies and techniques
  • Multidisciplinary teams: production, maintenance, & medical staff
  • Ergonomic Committees or Teams to drive the on-going review of ergonomic challenges
  • Establish ergonomic risk review within Management of Change processes
  • Training & awareness of the long-term nature of ergonomic injuries

BENEFITS

  • Credible and cost-effective mitigation solutions: infrastructure, systems, people
  • Heightened awareness of ergonomic risks amongst line management
  • Improved employee conditions, reducing long-term claims exposure

Asbestos Management

OBJECTIVES

  • Identify asbestos containing materials within buildings and infrastructure
  • Assess hazards to health, and exposure risks
  • Define a risk-based management or removal strategy

TECHNIQUES

  • Site surveys to identify potential asbestos containing material (ACMs)
  • In-field sampling and lab analysis to confirm the presence of ACM
  • Recommendations on management in-situ, or removal & disposal
  • Remediation of high-risk asbestos containing material, due to type & exposure pathways
  • Coordinating on-site asbestos-containing material removal, encapsulation & off-site disposal

Key Projects Related to Occupational Health

Ergonomic Evaluation

Category: Government & Public Services

Ergonomic evaluation for eight immigration offices across the country and a total of 228 workers. 225 evaluations of computer stations, 15 MAC evaluations (evaluation of repetitive movements), 27 evaluations ART (evaluation of manual handling of loads) and 228 anthropometric evaluations were applied. Improvements were proposed in infrastructure, training requirements and the creation of a 5S program.

Risk Assessment in Health, Safety and Ergonomics

Category: Pharmaceutical & Health Care

Risk Assessment in Health, Safety, and Ergonomics, for 252 production job stations. A tool was developed that combined the results of ergonomic evaluations (through ART and MAC) and the analysis of other health and safety hazards. In addition, a rotation plan was developed for each line of product manufacturing in which positions with low residual ergonomic risk rotated with others of high ergonomic risk, in order to decrease the risk level.

Occupational Exposure Assessments

Category: Industrial Manufacturing

Occupational exposure assessments for noise, dust and chemical agents for three clothing manufacturing facilities.

Industrial Hygiene Study

Category: Industrial Manufacturing

Industrial hygiene study that evaluated exposure of workers in the drawing area to respirable particles and, in the galvanized area, to zinc in respirable particles and hydrochloric acid vapors.
