The missing cog in your business health.
At Blue Turtle we provide a range of occupational hygiene services to help your business meet its Health and Safety obligations helping you to not only stay in compliance with current legislation, but protecting your workforce from occupational illness.
Below is a list of our occupational hygiene and monitoring services. We will be glad to discuss your specific needs and provide any further information you may need.
COVID-19 Return to Work Risk Assessment
The UK Government and Devolved Governments have published guidance that advises employers to carry out an assessment of the risks posed by COVID-19 before restarting operations. For employers who have continued to operate throughout the lockdown, they must use the current guidance to identify further improvements.
The Health and Safety Executive have stated that they will be carrying out work to check that appropriate measures are in place to protect workers from COVID-19 and will continue to investigate work related deaths across all industry sectors, including those related to social distancing and COVID-19.
Duty holders are still obliged to comply with current health and safety legislation with requirements to manage and control workplace risks which include protecting workers, contractors, visitors and the public from the risk of COVID-19 infection.
How can we help?
Occupational Hygiene is the applied science of identifying, assessing and controlling occupational health risks. This is something that we do on a day to day basis.
As Occupational Hygienist, Blue Turtle can help you by providing an independent review of your COVID-19 risk assessment against the current guidance applicable to the country your business resides (UK Only). We will provide clear advice on further considerations that need to be made, adequacy of proposed controls, recommendations on further controls and their implementation so that you can demonstrate compliance with the guidance and current HSE legislation.
In most cases, the above work can carried out remotely by conducting a desktop review of relevant documentation combined with a telephone or video conference consultation. Where business needs are more complex requiring a site visit, arrangements can be made for safe access and egress to the workplace inline with current guidelines.
If you don't currently have a COVID-19 return to work risk assessment and would like some assistance in developing this then please get in touch to discuss your needs.
