About Workplace Environment Solutions Ltd.

Workplace Environment Solutions (WES) Ltd was established in 2004 by Martin Stear and Tracey Boyle , who are the joint Directors and Principal Consultant Occupational Hygienists within the company. Both have over 25 years’ occupational hygiene experience, working in consultancy, industry and for the Health and Safety Exceutive (HSE) and they are fully qualified, each holding (amongst other qualifications) the BOHS Diploma of Professional Competence in Occupational Hygiene, which is the highest professional qualification in occupational hygiene.

WES also has a network of similarly qualified specialists who are each highly qualified and recognised experts in the field of occupational hygiene. WES uses these associates for larger projects and, where necessary, to ensure that work is completed in a timely manner.

WES has assisted small companies through to large multi-national organisations with legislative compliance, with the assessment and control of exposure, and in the investigation of ill health and workplace incidents. We have also acted as expert witnesses for civil litigation (acting for claimants and defendants) and criminal prosecution.

Martin is the Registrar to the Faculty of Occupational Hygiene and Tracey is Honorary Secretary of the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS). They are both also Fellows of the Faculty of Occupational Hygiene.

Martin was chair of the former asbestos certification scheme (ABICS).
