Up to quite recently, very little legislation was in place to deal with Health & Safety issues in the workplace and where it did exist it tended to deal with pressure vessels and steam boilers in more traditional factory environments. The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 1989 requires all employers to prepare a Safety Statement in writing for their workplace. Failure to comply with this legislation can lead to prosecution.
Cronin Environmental offer the service of preparing Safety Statements which includes a policy statement and risk assessment in line with requirements outlined in the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act, 2005 ensuring your business is in compliance with current legislation
Under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (Construction) Regulations 1995, a safety and health plan is required if the construction project is to last longer than 30 working days, the volume of work at construction stage is scheduled to exceed 500 person days or the work involves a particular risk to safety and health.

Cronin Environmental offer the service of preparing both preliminary Safety and Health plans at the design stage and the Safety and Health Plan for the construction stage of the project.
Cronin Environmental offer the service of personal sampling to determine the exposure of a worker to airborne contaminants. We can sample for dusts, fibres, fumes and mists, toxic vapours, aerosols and gases.
The sampling device is positioned in the breathing zone of the worker where the air is representative of that which the worker is breathing.
Personal sampling is carried out under the methods laid down by NIOSH/OSHA and the results are compared with the specified occupational exposure limits.
Asbestos is the name for a group of fibres which are strong and both heat and chemically resistant. Breathing air containing asbestos can lead to cancer of the lungs and chest.
The use of asbestos is now banned, however large quantities of asbestos can still be found in older buildings. Cronin Environmental offer the service of monitoring for asbestos using a sampling cowl and portable pump.
Exposure to high levels of noise, either continuously or as a sudden loud bang, can cause incurable deafness, often accompanied by a ringing in the ears.
Under the noise regulations 1990 an employer must assess the level of noise in the workplace. If any workers are exposed to a daily personal noise exposure above 85dBA, then measurements must be taken.
Cronin Environmental offer this service along with the assessment of ear protectors for the worker.

Increasing knowledge of the indoor environment is essential in assessing the welfare of the building and its occupants. Cronin Environmental offer the service of monitoring:

  • Air Velocity.
  • Temperature/relative humidity.
  • Carbon Dioxide.
  • Carbon Monoxide.
  • Airborne Paticulates.
