H stands for health in relation to working conditions (occupational health and safety) in the workplace. How do you deal with the new Machinery Directive? How do I perform an additional risk assessment and evaluation? And what about the dangers when working with hazardous substances? We ensure that these questions are comprehensibly and clearly dealt with.

What can we do for you? We can determine the occupational health and safety policy of your company, carry out an (A) RI & E and then set up an action plan with action points, a time schedule and a cost estimate. We provide training courses in the field of Machinery Directive, ATEX, use of fall protection devices (harnesses), working with hazardous materials, etc. We help you set up a management system (ISO 45001). Guiding the certification process, performing audits, providing training and making annual reports are among our work areas.

If you have doubts or questions over your H&S policy and procedures, please contact us. We are more than willing to visit you on location to discuss how we can help you identify the required solution.

Health and Safety Legislation

With the implementation of the updated H&S Act in 2007 the Authorities are introducing a new approach to managing Health and safety aspects. The responsibility for health and safety is no longer only by the employer but the employee also has specified responsibilities. There are currently more possibilities for a “combined effort “approach within a certain branch, these requirements will be documented in the recognized “branch organization H&S catalogue”. The goal of this new approach is to reduce the H&S risks and generally improve working conditions.

Aspects of working conditions

Different aspects within the working conditions deserve specific attention, such as physical stress, biological agents, chemical materials, asbestos etc. The correct implementation of the recognized occupational hygiene risk reduction strategy can provide additional protection to employees. This strategy is based on a multistep approach namely: the implementation of risk reduction measures at the source, collective and individual measures and when all else fails the application of personal protective equipment.


  • Removal at source measures: The removal of hazards at the source of origin, for example the exchange of dangerous materials with a safer alternative.
  • Collective measures: The implementation of general measures to reduce the total risks for example the installation of a central air extraction system for removal of dangerous vapors.
  • Individual measures: The introduction of personal measures for example task rotation in order to reduce the risk for physical stress or other ergonomic problems.
  • Personal protection equipment: PPE such as safety shoes, helmets, hearing protection etc. should only be used as a last resort and where possible as a temporary measure or as an additional safeguard.
