The 2015 theme was iGiene, promoting three key principles of inspire, integrate and inform. Integrate was the key to ChemCentre’s presence to demonstrate value-add by providing hygiene functions, including chemical testing, integrated into normal business activity.
Eight team members participated at the Crown Perth venue to share their expertise on a range of occupational health issues. The wider team provided advice from the ChemCentre booth on all occupational health issues from workplace drug testing, clandestine laboratory remediation, to biological and air monitoring.
Occupational Health and Investigations Team Leader Angela Downey presented on the monitoring of dangerous isocyanates in the air; Forensic Science R&D and Training Manager John Coumbaros presented on recent trends seen in workplace drug testing; and Manager Project Development Silvia Black presented on the use of tracer gases to give insights into the movement of dangerous gases in underground mines. Occupational Health Chemist Tracy King also presented a poster on the classification of household hazardous waste. All of the presentations were well received and led to increased interest at the booth.
Business Development Manager Stuart Rietkerk said the huge range of delegates made the conference stimulating, relevant and enjoyable.
“It was great to catch up with local and interstate clients, but also meet a huge range of new people who are clearly dedicated to protecting their employees,” Stuart said.
