Industry partner delivering innovative and sustainable chemical solutions

The workplace regulations require companies, whatever their size to assess, manage and prevent any professional risk.

From laboratory to industrial scale, Certech specialists (including prevention advisers) support industries for the evaluation of the employees exposure to chemicals, microbiological products, physical agents or to particles.

From the design stage of a product or a process, Certech insures to assess the exposure risk level by coupling predictive risk assessment methods with on-site measurements.

On industrialized processes, Certech carries on exposure risk assessment by using well approved methods.

Depending on the needs, Certech can help the industries in the following fields:

Risk Analysis:

This first step requires the analysis of a working process, as well as the detection, inventory and prioritisation of pollutants according to their hazards.
Risk assessment by using modelling tools can also be helpful for industrials when projects are at their design stage.

Samplings and analyses :

In some cases, specific samplings and analyses have to be performed to confirm the presence of a specific risk. Measurements are realised after the determination of similar exposure group (SEG) and the design of a sampling plan.

Air quality is assessed according to the existing limit values and based on international standards or approved methods.

Assessment of workplace exposure levels :

The analysis and the interpretations of the results are performed using specific and adapted tools. The validation as well as the representativeness of the samplings are realised in order to determine the frequency of measurements required, to follow a dynamic risk assessment approach.

Various toxicological analyses can also be performed by different Certech’s partners.

Development in the field of safety:

As an R&D partner, Certech help industries in the development of safer products and processes.
It’s knowledge and instrumental expertise allow to assess the performance of collective protection equipments (CPE) of processes or to develop various analytical methods, for instance, to evaluate the efficiency of personal protective equipment (PPE), such as cartridges for respiratory protections or to characterise an explosive atmosphere (ATEX), etc…
