Employees should not conduct work that exposes them to substances which present a risk to their health unless a suitable and sufficient assessment of air quality has been made. Many industrial and commercial processes release hazardous substances into the working environment unless properly controlled. Without performing air monitoring it’s difficult to know what staff exposure levels are, and impossible to be confident that limits are not being breached. If any control measures such as dust masks or ventilation equipment fail or deteriorate, this can also pose a serious risk to health.
The pollutants measured though Workplace Exposure Monitoring are typically those that cause damage to the respiratory tract and lung tissue, such as dust and glass fibres. Short term exposure at high levels can cause immediate problems, while prolonged exposure at low levels can lead to diseases such as pneumoconiosis and cause irreparable damage to other internal organs.
