Confined Space Gas Sampling
Air sampling is carried out to ensure that workplace or environmental air is meeting regulatory standards and to help Occupational Hygiene and Health & Safety professionals assess employee exposure to airborne hazards. Airborne contaminants can present a significant threat to worker health and safety. Thus, identification and quantification of these contaminants through air monitoring is an essential component of a health and safety program at a hazardous waste site. Reliable measurements of airborne contaminants are useful for:
· Selecting personal protective equipment.
· Delineating areas where protection is needed.
· Assessing the potential health effects of exposure.
· Determining the need for specific medical monitoring.
