Our Process Goes Beyond Monitoring
Unlike other companies, we don’t simply drop off an inexpensive badge and call it “chemical monitoring.” While we do offer badge monitoring as part of our environmental monitoring services, we also provide a much more comprehensive form of monitoring for chemical exposure.
If our evaluation uncovers chemical exposure beyond established safe levels, then we conduct a thorough review of established exposure mitigation methods, including increased ventilation to prevent inhalation damage from airborne exposure and personal protective equipment to prevent skin or ingestion hazards.
Airborne Chemical Exposure Monitoring
Checking for airborne chemical exposure is complicated. It involves determining the contact type, length of contact and chemical concentration. Our process includes identifying the hazardous chemical(s), figuring out the best monitoring method for the situation, undertaking an accurate analysis, interpreting the results, formulating a response and carefully documenting all findings.
Our skilled technicians test and document employee exposure by utilizing the expensive, highly sensitive MIRAN SapphIRe monitoring equipment that detects and measures workplace airborne chemicals. Our testing includes the applicable ceiling level, and a 15-minute STEL (short-term exposure limit) and an 8-hour TWA (time weighted average). The machine then provides readings in the tenths-of-a-part-per-million range — in real time.
When we find a problem, we fix it, alleviating the issue and making your health care facility safer. Depending on the problem, we will reduce employees’ chemical hazardous exposures through ventilation, the elimination of chemical leaks, and the establishment of workplace and practice evaluations.
