Free information – occupational hygiene- The ‘who’s who’ of specialist support

Occupational hygiene is concerned with the prevention or control of hazards that can impact on worker health, such as exposure to physical, chemical, or biological agents, as well as stress and musculoskeletal disorders. If organisations don’t employ an occupational hygienist, then the person responsible for health and safety may well, at times, need specialist help in these areas.All contacts listed in this directory are members of BOHS’s Faculty of Occupational Hygiene. The Society is quick to emphasise that a listing should not be seen as an endorsement of an individual but it does provide a degree of security, as entry into the Faculty is via professional examinations, which, at the lowest grade, demonstrate a minimum of three years of practical experience in occupational hygiene.Individuals are also bound by the Faculty’s Code of Ethics, which imposes a responsibility on members to maintain the highest standards of technical and professional integrity. Lastly, all Faculty members participate in a CPD scheme designed to maintain a high level of current awareness and knowledge in occupational hygiene.Call 01332 298101 for your free hard copy, or view and download it from the publications section of the BOHS website at
