BSRIA Instrument Solutions recently staged two separate one-day dust monitoring seminars which covered the workplace as well as the external environment and gave insights into compliance with H&S Regulations and legislation, alongside solutions for day-to-day applications.
The important issues of dust in the work environment, the effect of employee health and respiratory equipment were all scrutinised.
Stacey Ward, Sales Manager, BSRIA Instrument Solutions, gave a presentation on the new product launch of the TSI AM520 personal aerosol monitor. This portable unit easily captures real time data of mass concentration readings, which is ideal for workplace monitoring, specifically in the workers’ breathing zone.
He said: “Workplace Exposure Limits (WEL's) are vital for the health and wellbeing of the employee. Monitoring to show that you are compliant and that preventative actions are in place (for example: FaceFit, respiratory testing) is best practice to both protect you and your employees. The consequence of employee health from potential dust in the work place cannot be underestimated enough.”
Maxine Dolloway, TSI, gave an overview of workplace and dust monitoring followed by Nick Baxter, HSL, with a presentation on PPE and respiratory protection.
