Monitoring is generally accomplished using a quantitative method. Our hygienists employ a pump to draw air through appropriate sampling media. The media is sealed and maintained under a chain-of-custody. It is shipped to our laboratory for the appropriate analysis. The lab analysis determines the average airborne concentration of the specific chemical agent sampled for. This process requires an employee(s) to wear the sampling equipment for the duration of their shift.

The information obtained during assessments can be used for the following:

  • Demonstrate compliance with OSHA standards
  • Protect companies against fraudulent workers compensation claims.
  • Validation of effective engineering controls.
  • Provide positive reinforcement to everyone that the workplace is safe.
  • Recognize and schedule periodic monitoring requirements.
  • Lead & Identify the appropriate personal protection equipment needed to maintain the safety of workers.
