ESF provide monitoring products for many different areas. To find out more about what we can do for you please click on the relevant links below.

Compliance with COSHH
Ventilation Systems
Noise and Vibration
Environmental Protection Act
Laboratory Services



On the 1st October 1989, the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations became law. These have now been superseded by COSHH Regulations 2002 which are now in force. The main requirement of COSHH is that employers must make a thorough assessment of the risks to health involved with any activity that exposes the workforce to hazardous substances.

Few organisations have the spare resources to achieve permanent compliance, which is where ESF can help.

We audit your operation and implement the appropriate package of procedures, record keeping documentation and training.

We can then undertake monitoring and testing that will guarantee permanent COSHH compliance and your peace of mind.

To find out the package that's right for your business a qualified ESF consultant will visit you and make an overview visit to establish what is required.


Ventilation is an essential element in controlling hazardous substances in the workplace. In order to work, it must operate at maximum effectiveness.

COSHH recognises this and includes a requirement to test control ventilation systems at regular intervals.

ESF have the the equipment and expertise to carry out these routine checks and to organise your records in this area to meet COSHH requirements.

Hazardous Substances Assessed

* Dust Control
* Fume removal
* Industrial Ventilation
* Welding fume extraction
* Air filtration
* Energy recovery
* Air conditioning


High levels of noise can cause headaches, lack of efficiency and interfere with communication.

Exposure to high noise levels can induce hearing loss ultimately leading to deafness.

The Noise at Work Regulations 1989 define Action Levels at which noise becomes a health hazard and enforces documented assessment of those employees exposed to any noisy process.

Since April 2006, far stricter noise level regulations operate compared to previous limits. In addition, new vibration regulations are also now in force.

ESF have the specialist equipment and expertise to test noise levels to ensure your company complies with its statutory obligations. We also advise about ear protection and give guidance on possible noise reduction.


Industry has to face up to its impact on its surroundings or face the possibility of prosecution, heavy fines and bad publicity. ESF can help you meet all of the criteria laid down by the Act as well as to:

• show positive aspects of effective environmental management
• protect your business against prosecution
• reduce production costs
• make marketing capital out of green issues

We can carry out a complete Environmental Audit giving you a comprehensive analysis of your business including energy use, waste, recycling process technology and the analysis of waste byproducts in the soil, water and in the air.

We can then develop an Environmental Protection Programme for any organisation, tailor made to fit its size, processes, products and markets.


Our analytical chemistry investigations are conducted using a comprehensive range of analytical techniques including Fourier Transform Infra-Red Spectrometry, X-Ray Crystallography, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry, Ultra-Violet/Visible Spectrometry.

These investigations are carried out by a UKAS accredited laboratory either in-house or subcontracted.
