Workplace Exposure Limits (WELs) Consultancy

What are workplace exposure limits?

Workplace exposure limits (WEL) are the legal limits set on the amount of substances that can be present in workplace air.

Hazardous substances must be below the relevant workplace exposure limit. Importantly if the substance is known to cause cancer, genetic defects, allergy or asthma symptoms, or allergic skin reaction exposure, the level must be reduced to as low as reasonably practicable.

On August 21 2018, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) implemented new and revised Indicative Occupational Exposure Limit Values (IOELVs) for thirty-one chemical substances to help protect workers from the ill-health effects of exposure to hazardous substances in the workplace.

Application of health impact assessment for environmental and occupational exposures

  • 08 July 2021
  • 11:00-12:00

Join us on the 8th of July as Will Mueller shares insights on how to implement Health Impact Assessment (HIA) methods in environmental and occupational scenarios. His seminar will be of particular interest to those in occupational hygiene and air pollution research. The talk will allow others to capitalise on what went well and learn from some of the challenges, leading to more accurate, informed and impactful research from colleagues. 

The HIA is an important evaluation tool used to judge the potential health effects of a policy, programme or project on a population, particularly on vulnerable or disadvantaged groups and by using it in different settings it can help to facilitate cleaner environments and healthier workplaces.  

Running from 11:00-12:00 there will be a presentation followed by questions.
