The Occupational Safety and Health (Classification, Packaging and Labelling) Regulations 1997 and the Manual of Chemical Health Risk Assessment 2000 helps employers to assess whether there is any significant exposure of the chemicals to the worker and further medical surveillance is necessary.

The Occupational Safety and Health (Use and Standards of Exposure of Chemicals Hazardous to Health) Regulations 2000 is another attempt to further enhance the safe and healthy use of chemicals.

Under this Regulations health surveillance is necessary for chemicals hazardous to health as stipulated in the regulations. Medical surveillance carried out under the USECHH Regulations must be conducted by an Occupational Health Doctor (OHD).

Industrial Ventilation means, where the natural ventilation is not adequate further means of natural or mechanical ventilation or both shall be provided. Our team has registered hygiene technicians in DOSH in conducting the Inspection, Testing and Examination of LEV and GEV. SEE LAB provides its expertise in LEV examination for following systems.


Air Cleanliness means, where any process given off any offensive fume or dust which is or likely to be offensive or injurious to any person or being accumulated, measures shall be taken to protect against inhalation and prevent accumulation.

Application of Act is at all place of work in which hazardous chemical to health is used and place of work such as Production area, Processing, Storage, Handling, Transport, Disposal and Treatment.

According to USECHH Reg. 2000. , Part V, under clause “Action to Control Exposure” stated a control measure by Application of Engineering Control Equipment

SEE offer extremely effective and efficient Chemical Exposure Monitoring services to our patrons in Malaysia. In our Chemical Exposure Monitoring services, we take sample and analyse the hazardous chemicals in the industry that can harm the workers. Workers get exposed to chemicals in three ways; through skin, food and air. In our Chemical Exposure Monitoring services, our team of technicians is highly qualified and experienced.

Assessment must carried out by DOSH Registered Hygiene Technician I

This is required under The Occupational Safety and Health (Use and Standards of Exposure of Chemicals Hazardous to Health) Regulations 2000 (USECHH Regulations 2000) which is a set of regulations under the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994 (OSHA 1994).

The Chemical Exposure Monitoring is the measurement of employee exposure to work-related airborne chemicals that have the potential to affect the health and well-being of workers. This monitoring is an important component of Occupational Safety & Health, as this determines the types of controls required to remove or reduce the hazard to acceptable levels; and therefore, reduce the potential risk to employees’ health.

As Stated in Occupational Safety and Health (Noise Exposure) Regulations 2019, an Employer shall carry out Noise risk Assessment at workplace and must comply with the following limits:-

  1. Daily Noise exposure level exceeding 85 db(A) or daily personal noise dose exceeding hundred per cent;
  2. The maximum sound pressure level exceeding 115db(A) at any time; or
  3. The Peak sound pressure level exceeding 140 dB(C)

Noise risk assessment is limited to one or more representative employee from group of employee performing same work.

The Assessment would be carried out according to DOSH Requirement As per Occupational Safety and Health (Noise Exposure) Regulations 2019

Assessment must carried out by DOSH Registered Noise Competent Person

The Noise survey should cover all possible noise source (Machines), Area (Working Sections) and Employee Noise Monitoring.

As a leading service provider, we offer our customers with Ultrasonic Thickness Testing Service in Malaysia. Under Ultrasonic Thickness Testing, gauging of the local thickness of the metal elements is done in various industries so as to calculate the time taken by the ultrasonic wave to reach back to the service. Our Ultrasonic Thickness Testing services are highly accurate and reliable. We offer these services at an affordable price to our customers.a

Occupational noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is a major compensable occupational disease in Malaysia which involves substantial economic burden. Exposure to excessive noise also entails largely unrecognized costs to organizations by way of increased employee turnover and absenteeism, lowered performance and possible contribution to accidents. The social handicaps of occupational noise-related hearing disorders (ONRHD) are severe to the affected individual. ONRHD are irreversible and lead to communication difficulties, impairment of interpersonal relationship, social isolation and deterioration in quality of life. The family and others who are close to the affected person often experience secondary consequences from this condition. Hearing aid may benefit in overcoming some of the hearing impairment issues, but normal hearing can never be fully restored. For those people affected, a significant percentage suffers tinnitus (ringing in the ears) from those affected people.

The Factories and Machinery (Noise Exposure) Regulations 1989 has come into force on the 1st February 1989. It has been a legislation of noise exposure management and control for industries in Malaysia mainly targeting factory workplace environment.

Due to the rising number of ONRHD cases in industries other than manufacturing sector, the Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) has enacted the Occupational Safety and Health (Noise Exposure) Regulations 2019 to widen the current regulation’s enforcement to all sectors under Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994 [Act 514].

Biological monitoring is a way of assessing chemical exposures by measuring the chemical or its breakdown products in a biological sample (usually urine, blood or breath).

Biological monitoring is particularly useful where chemicals can be significantly absorbed through the skin and where controls rely upon the use of personal protective equipment, such as gloves and masks.

Biological monitoring has a number of roles in exposure assessment.  Our case studies illustrate some of the situations where it has been useful.

  1. To check that control measures are working
  2. To check that work practices are protective
  3. To check that training is understood and followed

The objective of Indoor Lighting Assessment is to determine the current lighting level meets the requirements of Second Schedule Regulation 29 (e) (Lighting) in Factories and Machinery (Safety, Health and Welfare) Regulations 1983.

The purpose of this guideline is to provide guidance on how to recognize, estimate, prevent and treat heat stress at work. Parameters of heat stress are introduced in this guideline to guide employers in avoiding discomfort from hot environment at work. The guideline also elaborates on risk assessment and risk control based on heat stress estimation using wet bulb globe temperature (WBGT). A warm or hot environment can compromise concentration, vigilance, or steadiness of employees.

It is one of the general duties of employer and self-employed person as prescribed under the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994 [Act 514] to provide a safe working environment and without risk to their employees’ health. Employees also have the duty to take reasonable care for their own safety and health and of others at work. The employers have to take practicable measures to ensure employees are protected from excessive heat exposure while at work.
