Industrial Hygiene

The adequate control of toxic agents is a major aspect of a healthy environment


Asbestos testing and noise dosimeter specialist

Noise, radiations, lighting, concentration of airborne particulate matter, toxic gas and vapours need to be assessed accurately. When the exposure to those agents have been assessed and compared to recognised standards and regulatory requirements an intervention scheme could be designed. Contex Environment only use methods and techniques that are well recognised and at the state of the art. Our professionals are recognised and certified from the main professional organizations. Many are teaching in renowned Universities.

The following tasks are currently performed :

Air Sampling :

  • Characterisation of Asbestos content in raw materials
  • Review of procedures for access to confined spaces
  • Volatile Organic compounds
  • Welding fumes
  • Carbon Monoxide
  • Styrene
  • Anesthetic gas
  • Chemical products
  • Biological Agents
  • Etc.

Safety and Accident Prevention :

  • Environmental noise and dosimetry
  • Analysis of main noise frequencies
  • Design of Prevention Programs

Electromagnetic Radiations :

  • Assessment of exposure to ultraviolet radiation, infrared, visible light, radio waves, microwaves and extremely low frequencies.


  • Assessment of exposure to radiation and Radioactive Contamination
  • Bioassays and assessment of internal doses of radiation
  • Leak tests for sealed sources of radionuclides
