Occupational air monitoring is the monitoring of indoor air in the vicinity of the workspace of staff. There are strict legal limits on the concentration of air borne contaminants as these can lead to health problems. The aim of occupational monitoring is to measure these concentrations over a representative pattern of work and determine whether the limits are breached.
Monitoring typically is by the use of calibrated air pumps drawing the workplace air through a filter, impinger or sorbent tube. The media is then analysed for the substance being monitored. The actual method used is dictated by the UK HSE (the Irish HAS references the UK HSE methods).
Environmental Efficiency can carry out occupational air monitoring of solvents, dusts, asbestos, and other chemicals. All analysis is undertaken by UKAS accredited labs.

"I came across your videos which were very useful for the ‘Management of Hazardous Materials and Processes’ module that I teach, which includes a section on containment. As many of our students have never worked in industry it always helps to have good visuals/videos to help explain material."
