Steven is our Lead Consultant based in our offices in Wellington. As a Occupational Hygienist Steven is able to help our clients in all areas of Occupational Hygiene, including asbestos services, noise surveys, respirator fit testing and workplace monitoring.
Steven has been with Chemsafety since 2015, starting out in our team in Christchurch before he took the opportunity to move back to his home town when we opened our office in Wellington. He enjoys the challenge of finding smart approaches to problems that our clients experience.
During the COVID19 level 4 lock down we were involved with fit testing a clients team members to ensure their masks were protecting them correctly. The disposable masks the clients team were wearing needed to protect them from contracting the virus and to do this there needs to be no gaps on the face where the virus can penetrate. Using a qualitative system where the team member wears their mask with a hood over top of that, the Occupational Hygienist sprays a sweet or bitter solution into the hood and if the wearer can taste the solution then their mask isn't fitting correctly. By educating the team on how to care for, wear and dispose of their disposable masks we were able to ensure that everyone in their team stayed safe & healthy.
