DustScanAQ conduct occupational exposure monitoring of dusts, fumes, vapours, mists and gases and are experts on dust exposure in particular. We routinely carry out personal monitoring of both inhalable and respirable dusts at:
- Quarries, stonemasons and aggregate recycling sites
- Construction and demolition sites
- Recycling and waste management sites
- Bakeries and patisseries
- Warehouses and distribution centres
- Intensive farming and grain processing facilities
Unlike other firms, we offer a complete service when it comes to occupational exposure testing: we setup and supervise the sampling ourselves, providing a professional and impartial approach that is favoured by the HSE; whilst making observations of staff activities and behaviour we also survey the workplace and record potential dust sources and review any existing control measures, this information helps us make site-specific recommendations in our report. For dust exposure and other related assessments we follow MDHS14/4 guidance and all sampling results are compared with the relevant COSHH workplace exposure limits (WELs).
