Air monitoring is a useful tool to identify and measure
asbestos exposure risks. In many cases there are regulatory requirements for
monitoring, to show individuals and work processes are not generating asbestos
fibres or that an area is safe to occupy.
Background Monitoring is undertaken when there are concerns that an area is contaminated.
Personal Monitoring involves workers wearing an air sampling unit, to determine potential exposure levels during, for example, maintenance work or asbestos removal.
Control Monitoring, during asbestos removal or planned disturbance, shows that control measures to reduce airborne fibre levels are working and sufficient.
Clearance Monitoring, following asbestos removal or disturbance, indicates when areas are safe for normal use,
From our many years of experience we advise clients if air
monitoring is appropriate in the first instance, as visual inspection of an area is
often more effective to identify potential exposure risks.
All monitoring results are issued as Nationally (NATA) accredited
