What Are Gas Monitoring Badges?
Passive dosimeter badges are worn by health care facility employees to measure the individual’s workplace exposure to a wide range of chemical gases. A small, lightweight clip-on badge is issued to each employee with his or her name, monitoring period dates and a unique identification number.
How Does Healthcare Gas Badge Monitoring Work?
Employees simply wear the badges on their bodies; the badges don’t require any attention or training, nor do they interfere with the employee’s duties in any way. The badge contains a microporous membrane through which chemical vapors pass. Absorbents under the membrane collect the vapors at a fixed rate during the sampling period. Following the gas badge monitoring period, each badge is put into a pouch, which is sealed and then sent back to us for processing.

Let Evergreen Medical reassure you and your employees that they are working in a safe environment by monitoring short- and long-term exposure levels to hazardous gases. It’s easy — all that’s required is that employees wear the badge, record the start and stop time on the pouch in which the badge is placed after testing, and return the badge to us for analysis.
