Fume Monitoring

Fume Monitoring

Potentially harmful fumes can be omitted from a variety of processes across a great number of industries.  The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations require you to make an assessment of the substances to which your employees are exposed and initiate a scheme of control measures proportionate to the hazards encountered.

Exposure to welding fume for instance can cause numerous undesirable health effects such as fatigue, nausea and headaches.  The accumulation of fumes from carbon monoxide produced in semi-enclosed areas can produce a toxic atmosphere that could potentially prove to be fatal.

Being able to ascertain what fumes are being produced and in what quantity is vital in establishing safe working practices that protect the health of your employees.  M.E.L. can take accurate readings at your workplace without disturbing the daily activities of your business.
