Too many people in Aotearoa New Zealand die or suffer from work-related ill-health and disease. Whatever industry you’re in, there are hazards involved. Workers might be exposed to excessive noise, or highly toxic fumes like welding fumes, or dangerous dusts such as crystalline silica which can cause various lung diseases. Contact Verum Group to identify potential sources of harm and suggest ways to prevent, mitigate, or eliminate the potential exposure for people. We also train employees in the hazards and educate on ways to minimize exposure.
Mask & Respirator Fit Testing
A mask fit test checks the effectiveness of the respiratory protection for employees, and are part of a company's commitment to health and safety. Tests are conducted to international standards prescribed by NZOHS, which simulate real-life work situations.
