- total inhalable dusts
- respirable dusts
A eeuk Workplace Air Monitoring Assessment includes:
- an accurate identification and calculation of airborne concentrations of hazardous substances in the workplace
- A direct comparison of personal exposure concentrations against current workplace exposure levels (WELs)
- Background concentrations to assess the effectiveness of engineering controls (such as LEV)
- Realistic recommendations for improvement to ensure a reduction of exposure to your employees
