We help employers to protect employees by checking control measures, monitoring Workplace Exposure Limits and identifying exposure to substances that cause occupational cancer or asthma. Controlling substances hazardous to health is the law. In the UK, respiratory-related diseases and conditions account for the third-largest work-related illness. Those most affected are; metal plate workers, vehicle body builders, plumbers, gas fitters, carpenters and bakers. People are exposed to substances every day, but certain professions are more at risk of being exposed than others, for example, dusty or fume-laden environments, quarries, metal finishers and woodworking factories.
