Peritus Health Management undertakes air monitoring to identify employee personal exposure in their breathing area and behind their respiratory protective equipment, as well as background levels of hazardous dusts, fumes, vapours and gases. We provide comprehensive workplace environmental air surveys for customers throughout the UK, using HSE and British Standards recommended sampling methods. More information.
Breathing in certain dusts, gases, fumes and vapours in the workplace can cause serious long term lung damage and death. The working environment must be properly controlled and monitored to keep workers, and other people exposed, safe.
Peritus Health Management’s occupational hygienists provide the science behind minimising the risk of ill health due to workplace exposure.
Your air monitoring survey results tell you if you have a problem, what the extent of the problem is and whether health surveillance, biological monitoring or lung function testing (spirometry) is required.
Peritus Health Management doesn’t just leave you with your results but works with you creating an action plan to help reduce your exposure levels and risks.
What to expect:
An initial consultation
- Our Occupational Hygienist will contact you to discuss your needs, understand your processes and the layout of your premises and work activities
- They will then develop a programme for monitoring prior to the monitoring session
- Both static and personal dose noise measurements will be taken as appropriate
- Occupational Hygienist stays on site observing employee working practice and sources of noise
- Interviewing at risk employees to understand personal daily noise exposure of employees and identify the appropriate ear protection required for the level of exposure.
- A report will be prepared providing you with feedback on the noise monitoring results, observations, recommendations, and your action plan to reduce exposure.
- Recommendations may include changing workplace design (low noise emitting machines, enclosures, barriers, or dampening strategies); planning organisational controls (job design, job rotation, changing activities); or implementing Hearing Protection Zones and a programme of health surveillance.
- Our occupational hygienist will contact you to discuss the contents of the report to ensure that you understand the contents, are satisfied with the outcome and know ‘what’s next’.
