Using assessment checklists, modeling tools, reviewing process operations and materials involved, we can develop an exposure assessment that can be used to prioritize the installation of controls and scheduling industrial hygiene sampling.
This can involve collecting air samples from the worker’s breathing zone during work activities to see if exposure levels exceed recommend exposure limits. Sometimes portable real-time monitors are attached to a worker to take measurements during the work activity. The end goal is to understand the risk of exposure to the worker.
IAQ evaluations can include a review of building HVAC system operations, measuring IAQ parameters, sampling for mold, monitor for dust and ultra-fine particles, inspecting for water intrusion.
