AIR MONITORING FOR EMPLOYEE EXPOSURE
Airborne hazards are part and parcel of many manufacturing and production processes. These can only be managed if you have quantified and qualified the levels of exposure in the breathing zone of workers. We can help you by monitoring your risk for employee exposure to airborne hazards on site.
Your first step should be to establish what airborne hazards need to be quantified for employee exposure. Call or email us if this is difficult as this is not often straight forward. Not all airborne hazards need to be monitored and our experience can be drawn on the identify the degree of risk.
Below are some of the common hazards that are of concern to workplaces and may require exposure monitoring:
- Metal dusts and fumes from welding, soldering, fabrication, galvanizing and electroplating etc,
- General airborne dirt and dust,
- Respirable crystalline silica in stone mason fabrication businesses, quarries, recycling plants, foundries and precast cement yards, brick works etcetera
- General chemicals from printing, laboratories, hospitals, manufacturing and industry etc,
- Thermal decomposition for plastic products in injection moulding processes and from heat treatment etc,
- Explosive gases at sewerage and water treatment authority sites and treatment plants etc,
- Carbon monoxide from vehicle emissions in truck and vehicle service centres etc,
- Inhalable and respirable dust that are non toxic or toxic,
- Asbestos fibre collection and monitoring,
- Poly aromatic hydrocarbons at asphalt plants etcetera.
We provide monitoring of the local exhaust ventilation (LEV) extraction rates within the employees' work area and calculate flow rates based upon exposure. Personal protection equipment will also be evaluated using levels recorded against a protection matrix.
