Monitoring

Occupational hygiene monitoring is generally concerned with quantifying a workers exposure to those hazards in the workplace that may affect health and safety.

Many larger workplaces have in-house risk management guidance and assistance procedures that they can follow, though smaller workplaces may find it necessary to engage the assistance of a specialist consultant. For smaller workplaces, the QLD WH&S Risk Management Advisory Standard is an excellent source of guidance.

These hazards present in a variety of forms and the occupational hygienist is specially trained to deal with a broad range of these:

Contamination of hand washing facilities in work place

Examples of some of these hazards are:
