Your duty of care to your staff and customers means effective management of potential occupational exposure to chemicals in the workplace….
Healthy Buildings International was commissioned to perform formaldehyde monitoring at a number of facilities that use formaldehyde for preservation purposes.
The key objective of the survey conducted by Healthy Buildings International hygienists was evaluate the quality of the of air at these facilities through direct measurement to confirm that any exposure levels for staff and other site workers were less than the national occupational exposure limits.
Where exceedances were found, Healthy Buildings International applied our in depth understanding of building ventilation systems to provide recommendations that would improve occupant air quality and reduce the source contaminant levels to well below safe working levels.
The inspection and sampling regime included general observations made of the air quality supplied by, and operation of, the heating ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems within the individual premises.
Measurements and samples were taken from the occupied areas and personal exposure sampling was undertaken on staff. The entire procedure was designed to form an integral part of an effective proactive indoor air quality monitoring programme and provide information for the implementation of an effective formaldehyde exposure risk assessment.
