Workplace Air Monitoring

We provide comprehensive workplace investigations to identify potential airborne hazards.

Workplace, health and safety (WHS) sampling and monitoring should be undertaken in following occasions:

1. If the company suspects, or has any reason to suspect, that raw materials or products from the company’s processes and operations has a potential health impact on the health and safety of its employees and other people working in or around their site.

2. As part of company’s internal WHS system and its moral obligation:

· Management proactive decision to to establish baseline and ongoing data to determine the possibility of exceeding the allowable workplace concentration values for airborne pollutants.

· Sustainable workplace environment and the implementation of existing WHS program (e.g., OHSAS 18001) by conducting regular monitoring as specified by the timetable and list of hazardous analytes identified. It also enables organisations to manage operational health and safety risks and improve performance.

3. Provide guidance and to determine appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) or necessary control measures and to keep a track record of the company’s workplace compliance history as may be needed in the case of litigation.
