Workplace Air

The use of chemicals or other hazardous substances at work can put people’s health at risk.

Occupational exposure limit values (OELVs) provide a basis for ensuring that human exposure to airborne contaminants in the workplace is controlled in such a way as to prevent adverse health effects. Employers are required by law to carry out risk assessments to assess the potential for employee exposure to hazardous substances.

Aeon Environmental can carry out workplace air risk assessments incorporating air monitoring, to determine employee exposure to a range of substances, including:

solvents
formaldehyde
dust
welding fume
isocyanates
asbestos

Solvents such as toluene, xylene, acetone and ethyl acetate can have significant effects on human health. Solvents have a wide range of uses and can produce very high exposures during tasks such spraying.

Formaldehyde is commonly used in pressed-wood products and other building materials and household products. Formaldehyde can cause asthma-like respiratory problems and skin irritation such as dermatitis and itching.

Inhalable dust refers to the particle size entering the mouth and nose during normal breathing. The respirable fraction is composed of the very fine dust which is able to reach the lower bronchioles and alveolar regions of the lung. Both inhalable and respirable dust can be toxic and cause various health effects on humans, depending on the material.

Weld fumes are a complex mixture of metallic oxides, silicates and fluorides. Prolonged exposure to welding fume is very dangerous to human health and may cause lung damage and various types of cancer.

Isocyanates are a commonly used coupling agent in the production of many foams and coatings. Spraying isocyanate products is a significant cause of occupational asthma and can cause skin irritation.

Asbestos can contribute to increased risk of lung cancer, asbestosis (scarring of the lung tissue) and mesothelioma (cancer of the lining of the chest).
