Workplace Air Sampling

Workplace air sampling from SGS – protect your employees from harmful emissions and comply with regulations.

Emissions in the workplace can have harmful effects on employees. The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmosphere Regulations 2002 (DSEAR) and the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulations 2012 require you to eliminate or control risks from dusts, fumes and vapours. We provide workplace air sampling so you can ensure that your employees are safe, and you are in compliance with regulations.

Why choose workplace air sampling from SGS?

Airborne dust, fumes and vapours are created in many work environments, such as:

  • Mines and quarries
  • Foundries and mills
  • Chemical and petrochemical plants
  • Pharmaceutical manufacture
  • Paint and dye manufacture
  • Factories
  • Paintshops and garages
  • Welding and burning shops
  • Construction and demolition
  • Timber and boat yards
  • Oil rigs and ships

If work processes in these environments are not well controlled, employees can develop serious health problems from emissions.

We can identify and measure airborne substances in your workplace to ensure that your workers are not at risk of exposure to hazardous substances, and you are complying with the law. We can design, carry out and report on the entire range of airborne contaminants. With access to a wide range of equipment including sampling pumps, absorbent tubes and direct reading instruments, we can apply the sampling techniques that best meet your specific requirements.
