Occupation Hygiene System

DEKRA’s Occupational Hygiene Systems will ensure that the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, communication and control environment stressors are managed through a multi-disciplinary approach. This is achieved through the continuous monitoring of systems that are suitable fo specific hygiene surveys. Custom-designed measurement calculators are used for surveys to provide clients with trend analysis graphs and diagrams. In conjunction with the client, we plot a project plan to get the non-conforming areas up to the levels required for full compliance. We also assist in controlling conditions by being reactive and by initialing proactive approaches to ensure continuous compliance levels.
