Occupational exposure screening & monitoring for a healthy work force

 

A healthy, dedicated workforce is essential to keep your business profitable. Identifying possible employee exposure to contaminants in the work environment can potentially reduce employee attrition rates, increase employee job satisfaction and improve overall morale, as well as protect your company by reducing your exposure to risk.

We offer full range of testing services that can assess exposure to harmful or hazardous substances. These would typically include:

  • Copper
  • Zinc
  • Lead
  • Cadmium
  • Mercury
  • Arsenic
  • Aluminum

Exposure to Organic Solvents

  • Benzene
  • Xylene

Pesticides

  • Acetylcholinesterase

Some of the industries where employees may be exposed to harmful effects of toxicity due to hazardous substances are:

  • gasoline refineries
  • smelting and battery manufacturing plants
  • food can soldering
  • any process that uses lead-based paints or ceramic glazes
  • automobile
  • construction
  • cosmetic and ayurvedic remedies
  • mining

The WHO estimates that 120 million people are over exposed to lead (approximately three times the number infected by HIV/AIDs) and 99 percent of the most severely affected are in the developing countries.

Early detection and subsequent preventive measure towards lead exposure can have a significant impact on the company and its employees, improving well-being, safeguarding employee health and enhancing productivity.
