Occupational Health & Safety

Occupational Health & Safety

Occupational Health and Safety is the area concerned with the safety, health and welfare of people engaged in work or employment. In order to protect employees from chemical risks and meet occupational health standards, monitoring of the work environment is vital. Here in WA, and indeed in Australia as a whole, occupational health and safety is an essential component of the workplace for the following reasons:

  • Compliance with workplace regulations and standards
  • Enhanced corporate image
  • Reduced employee absenteeism and decreased rates of illness and injuries
  • Enhanced employee productivity
  • Improved employee morale

Established 120 years ago when the very first government chemist was appointed in WA, ChemCentre in Perth is at the forefront of public health and safety. Besides supporting government agencies with chemical risk assessment expertise and quality testing services, our wide range of services relating to occupational health and safety is also frequently engaged by clients from various industries, including mining, agriculture and property development.

Our occupational health and safety services span the breadth of all of your chemical testing needs. We are capable of analysing for a vast range of airborne contaminants at low levels, including everything from aromatic hydrocarbons (e.g. BTEX) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to inhalable dust – our list is ever expanding.

In addition to our air quality monitoring services, our workplace drug testing programmes ensure that your employees are not taking potentially disastrous risks by working under the influence of mind altering drugs.
