Ian Bensemann and Nashid Khela, TriEx’s two Occupational Hygienists have recently spent a week in Auckland participating in a British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) course on the methods for the measurement and sampling of airborne hazardous substances.
The course was run at the Whenuapai Air Force base and was made up of theory and practical work.
This course was conducted at a high level equivalent to level 6. Prior experience and knowledge was essential before undertaking this course.
The course was of benefit in that it reaffirmed what Nashid and Ian have been doing by way of Air monitoring, and it provided them with updates regarding techniques, methods, equipment and analysis techniques for different types of samples.
Both Ian and Nashid work with a wide variety of our clients who require their working environment to be monitored for airborne contaminants such as fumes, vapours and dust. The industries that most frequently undertake air monitoring include manufacturing, sawmills, seed processors and bakeries, but there are numerous other companies who use our Occupational Hygiene Services.
