Dust Monitoring

Dust Monitoring

The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations detail Workplace Exposure Limits (WELs) for substances hazardous to health, including, of course a variety of dusts and fibres encountered within the workplace.  To ensure that your processes remain within the limits defined by the Regulations and their supplementary documentation, sampling exercises must be undertaken using highly-calibrated equipment.   

A variety of sampling methods can be utilised to obtain an accurate measurement of the dust that circulates within your factory, workshop or construction site; causing a health risk to all those who are directly exposed to the dust source as well as those who occupy adjacent areas.

Once the data is collected a report detailing the current exposure levels will be supplied and explained to ensure that you are fully aware of the health implications of your current practice and the legal standing with reference to the Regulations.

M.E.L. can then assist you in reducing the exposure level through the implementation of considered control measures and management systems that will enable you to prevent damaging the health of your employees and allow you to achieve compliance with the law.
