Breathe now, suffer later

Workplace Air Monitoring is not critical, but EEUK’s service is.

Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there – hazardous materials in the air can be visible or invisible and include chemicals, gases, vapours, fumes, dusts, and fibres.

Solvents are found in most everyday products, from paints and inks, many cleaning products, to personal care products and more.

The risks of solvent and dust exposure

In the short term, the vapour from these products can attack the central nervous system, leading to headaches, dizziness, and eye and nose irritation. If exposure is prolonged, the longer-term effects can cause blindness, liver and kidney damage, and eventually death.

Let’s talk dust exposure, and specifically dust from metal processes such as welding and grinding, which hundreds of thousands of workers are exposed to daily.

It starts with irritation of eyes, ears, nose, and throat moving to the irritation of the skin. Repeated exposure then starts to attack the lungs, the liver, the kidneys, and many metals are linked to the cause of cancer, ultimately causing a reduced life or an uncomfortable end of a person’s life.

The harmful effects of poor air quality can be devastating.

How we can help with workplace air monitoring

The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 (as amended) place a duty of care on employers to undertake assessments to evaluate the risks to health when using hazardous substances in the workplace.

At EEUK, we are honest in our approach. Workplace air monitoring is critical, but this alone will not save lives. It is what we do with the results of the workplace air monitoring that creates the value you need. You will not get a report that tells you who is exposed to what and at what concentration, as that is the minimum service everyone gives.

EEUK go one step further – we will tell you specifically how exposure can be reduced and support you in all corrective actions from start to finish. We will then prove it has worked.

Let us help safeguard your staff and maintain moral, legal, and commercial obligations.
