Industrial Hygiene Chemical Exposure Monitoring
Chemical exposure monitoring can be for a variety of reasons. Often times SDS sheets of products used in production prompt management to perform air monitoring. Other times employee complaints, absences and productivity prompt investigations. Lastly, Ministry of Labour orders can compel employers to perform chemical exposure investigations. Whatever the reason, scientifically backed testing is what is required to properly evaluate any of the previously mentioned issues.
Airzone follows methods and protocols developed and validated by governmental organizations including NIOSH, OSHA, and equivalent agencies from other jurisdictions. We are able to identify through discussion or facility walk-through, particular areas requiring chemical exposure monitoring. We can develop a cost-effective sampling program that will meet any facility’s needs and deliver a comprehensive report with our results, observations, interpretations, and recommendations.
Target compounds in Industrial and Commercial facility assessments may include:
- Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) – See why your hand-held instrument, PID, could be insufficient.
- Particulate Matter (inhalable and respirable fractions)
- Aldehydes and Ketones
- Carbon Monoxide
- Acid Mists
- Weld Fumes
Airzone can respond to your inquiry in a timely manner. In some cases we can even begin our assessment and sampling program on the same day.
