Workplace Exposure Monitoring

What is workplace exposure monitoring?


Workplace exposure monitoring refers to the process of measuring concentrations of hazardous substances, such as chemical vapours, gases, dusts, and fumes, that workers may be exposed to on the job. The goal of workplace exposure monitoring is to prevent or control worker exposure to hazardous substances in order to protect their health.


Why do I need to undertake exposure monitoring?


Exposure monitoring will help to quantify the concentrations of hazardous substances your workforce is exposed to. These concentrations can then be compared to the Workplace Exposure Standards (WES) to identify what controls (if any) are required to reduce exposure to as low as is reasonably practicable, thereby reducing the health risks.

The latest workplace exposure standards can be found on Worksafe NZ website. We also offer assistance with Personal protective and respiratory protective equipment including respirator fit testing.
