Register of Occupational Hygiene Professionals
The Register of Occupational Hygiene Professionals is the UK’s regulated professional register of individuals competent to practise Occupational Hygiene and provide you with the necessary advice and expertise to help you protect the health of your workforce.
What is the Register of Occupational Hygiene Professionals?
The Register of Occupational Hygiene Professionals is administered by the Faculty of Occupational Hygiene, the Professional Standards Body for the British Occupational Hygiene Profession.
Whether you are employing someone to provide occupational hygiene advice in-house or have employed the services of a company, you need to check that the person giving you advice is competent to do so.
The Register enables you to check an individual’s level of expertise and to see whether they have been independently verified as meeting the requirements outlined in Regulation 7 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999. If they are not on the Register, even if they are registered with another professional body, then there has not been an independent check of their training, experience and other attributes. It is your duty to ensure that you have undertaken appropriate due diligence to verify these matters yourself.

If you have an undertaking that employs or uses workers, then you have a legal duty to ensure that you have access to competent occupational hygiene advice.
