Dust Monitoring

What is personal dust monitoring?


Personal dust monitoring is a method of measuring the amount of dust that a worker is exposed to during their normal job tasks. It involves the use of a personal air sampling pump, that is worn by the worker during their shift. The equipment draws in air through a small filter, which captures any dust particles that are present. After the shift is over, the filter is removed and analysed to determine the concentration of dust particles in the air that the worker was breathing. This concentration is then compared to the Workplace Exposure Standard (WES) relative to that specific dust of concern.

What dusts can be monitored?


We can monitor a range of particulate from general inhalable and respirable dusts, to more specific contaminants such as: Respirable crystalline silica (RCS), diesel particulate matter, wood dust, sugar dust, flour dust, metal particulate, metal fume, man made mineral fibers, asbestos, aerosols, mists, alkaline dust, acid mists, and many others.
