Welcome to MEC 


'together we can make a difference'

Meridian Environmental Consultants Ltd (MEC) 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 assessing the risk and hazards and recommending, where necessary, improvements in work conditions and work practices.

There are a wide range of health hazards that can arise from exposures at work, for example toxic substances, fumes and mists and vapours or dusts. It could be a physical hazard such as noise, vibration or radiation, or it could be human factors and ergonomics such as manual handling, stress or repetitive movement.  Other hazards include thermal comfort, confined spaces or biological hazards. 

MEC works with employees and employers to help you understand the risks and 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.
