Personal Air Sampling
As a business you have a legal obligation to adhere to COSHH guidelines on a workers safe level of exposure to substances hazardous to health and there are varying Workplace Exposure Levels (WELs) for materials identified as being hazardous. WELs are British occupational exposure limits and are set in order to help protect the health of workers. WELs are concentrations of hazardous substances in the air, averaged over a specified period of time, referred to as a time-weighted average (TWA). These are published in EH40 workplace exposure limits – a document available free of charge from the HSE website.
Substances like dust can have serious effects on the health of your employees. Exposure to dust can cause serious skin conditions and even damage to the lungs and airways causing conditions such as:
- Lung Cancer
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD)
An effective LEV system and correct PPE should be keeping your workplace dust and fume free and your staff well protected but it’s often necessary to undertake ‘Air Sampling’ in the working environment and near a worker’s breathing zone to ensure the air they have access to is safe.
We offer personal and static gravimetric air sampling, an accurate method to measure the concentration of airborne contaminants within your workplace. Static tests are conducted in and around the work area whereas Personal Air Sampling happens close to your worker’s airway; a method of testing for airborne substances that may be inhaled when a worker undertakes a particular task.
Coupled with a thorough test of your LEV equipment, samples are collected using specialist equipment and tested in laboratories to enable us to offer you a comprehensive ‘Occupational Exposure to Substances’ report on the quality of your workplace air. We will outline dangers your workforce may be exposed to and make recommendations on how you can improve your working environment.
Filtermist provides routine service plans freeing you up to concentrate on your business, as well as an emergency call-out service designed to keep production downtime to a minimum.
Filtermist is accredited by SafeContractor for the high standards of health and safety practiced throughout the company and the team of qualified engineers undertake regular training to ensure they’re up to date with the latest HSE requirements.
