"together we can make a difference"

 Welcome to Meridian Environmental Consultants Ltd 

Meridian Environmental Consultants Ltd (MEC) are committed to providing our customers with the very best occupational hygiene service. We have over 20 years' experience supporting businesses in all sectors of industry, including construction, manufacturing, renewable energy, power, aviation, engineering, healthcare and retail.  We are an independent, family-run consultancy and our business is all about protecting people and keeping them healthy and safe at work.  MEC works with you to help focus on worker health protection by recognising workplace health hazards, evaluating the magnitude of exposure and recommending, where necessary, improvements in control measures, work conditions and work practices.

There are a wide range of health hazards that can arise from exposures at work, for example hazardous substances, in the form of vapours, fumes, mists and dusts. It could be a physical hazard such as noise, vibration or radiation. Other hazards include heat and cold stress, thermal comfort, lighting or biological hazards. 

MEC work with our customers to help them understand the hazards in their workplace, the risks they pose to worker health and how to control and minimise them, which in turn promotes:  

  • Improved worker health and increased life expectancy,

  • Reduction in the number of people who leave employment early through injury or illness,

  • Lower social and health care costs as well as maximising worker potential and wellbeing,

  • More efficient working processes with technological improvements and increased productivity,

  • Confidence you are working with a trusted, independent compliance partner, and

  • Peace of mind knowing your workforce can go home healthy to their friends and family.


MEC's expertise in recognising workplace health hazards and evaluating the magnitude of exposure means we can guarantee proportionate advice on how to control workplace health risks.
