Measure personal exposure to potentially harmful chemicals during the working day.

Indoor Pollution Monitoring
Many occupations involve the use of hazardous substances or processes where pollutants may be ingested, inhaled or absorbed through the skin. General ambient pollutants can also have health implications in otherwise non-hazardous workplaces.

In addition to the requirements to meet occupational limits, monitoring the ambient air quality is important for maintaining worker health and preventing sick leave or long-term health problems. Diffusion tubes are an ideal way of monitoring pollutant levels over a long period – for example, average levels can be measured over a 2-4 week period making this a low cost monitoring option.

Workplace monitoring can also be used to test the efficiency of pollution control measures such as extraction systems, scrubbers and land remediation.

Common locations and applications include:

  • Printing companies.
  • Healthcare environments.
  • Garages.
  • Painting and paint spraying companies.
  • Metal processes.
  • Processes using adhesives, solvents and resins.
  • Dry cleaning.
  • Risk assessments.
  • Electronics assembly rooms.

Exposure monitoring can be conducted for the following gases

  • Nitrous oxide as an anaesthetic gas.

  • Chlorinated VOCs from dry cleaning.
  • Solvents.
  • Resin vapours during manufacture.
  • Petroleum hydrocarbons.
