Dust & Fume Monitoring
Air quality monitoring involves the measurement and assessment of workers’ exposure by inhalation to named airborne hazardous substances, which could be in the form of dusts, fumes, gas, aerosol, mists, fibres etc, and which may have legal exposure limits based on an 8-hour day or a short-term limit of 15 minutes for substances that may have an immediate (acute) ill health effects.
