Dust Exposure Testing Services

Dust exposure risks

Dust exposure is highly toxic and can cause lasting ill health effects. Thousands of workers are made ill by occupational dust exposure in the workplace every year, increasing the risk of lung diseases such as asthma, COPD and cancer.  Are you inhaling particles that could have long-term effects? A dust survey will tell you what you are breathing in and how to manage exposure.

If you don’t know how much dust you are exposing your employees to, you don’t have the information on which to base your control measures. An occupational hygiene dust survey will provide you with this information. Having an occupational hygiene survey to assess the health hazards in the workplace and implementing control measures will reduce the real risks these pose to workers’ health.

How IOM can help

We work with employers to understand the health risks and provide independent advice to improve working conditions and practices through suitable, inexpensive, effective and practical exposure control measures. Our expert testing and monitoring methods will help identify if exposure limits of general dust or those dusts assigned with specific workplace exposure limits (WELs) are being exceeded in the workplace.

With over fifty years of experience of working within all sectors, we can provide clear, concise and factual survey data of your workplace environment and can model worker exposure using modern measurement techniques ensuring your business complies with the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH).

The British Occupational Hygiene Society campaign Breathe Freely was launched to reduce occupational lung disease, by raising awareness. Find out more
