Occupational hygienic analyses are used to determine exposure and emissions

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Act, the employer is responsible for a task-specific risk assessment at the workplace.  Occupational hygienic analyses help provide important information for assessing work-related exposure. 

Our occupational hygienic analyses can help to identify: 

  • work-related exposure (type and concentration of exposure) 
  • emissions of materials and production processes (testing emissions and thermal decomposition products)

Harmful factors and their combined effects should be assessed simultaneously.

We are a unique expert on work-related exposure in Finland

Our wide range of analyses includes the following: aldehydes, anaesthetic gases, phenol, cresol, acid anhydrides, organic and inorganic acids, bases, chlorine, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, PAH, PCB, metals, amines, phthalates, isocyanates, reduced sulphur compounds, light hydrocarbons, hydrogen peroxide, solvents, and other volatile organic compounds. 

Our methods are based on occupational hygiene standards and reference methods. We extensively participate in international reference rounds. When assessing work-related exposure, our results can be compared to national or international limits or reference values.

As an expert institute of well-being at work, we provide up-to-date information and reference values on the work-related exposure agents we have investigated.
