Safe Work Australia has just released Workplace Exposure Standards for Airborne Contaminants which has effect from 18th April 2013.
Every person who conducts a business must ensure that workers are not exposed to a substance or mixture in an airborne concentration that exceeds the exposure standard for that substance or mixture.
Examples of these substances or mixtures include: carbon monoxide, chlorine, bromine, chlorine dioxide, formaldehyde, petrol, ozone, toluene, acetic acid, MEK, xylene & glutaraldehyde.
Every person who conducts a business must ensure that air monitoring is carried out to determine the airborne concentration of a substance or mixture to determine whether there is a risk to health.
If you are unsure & would like one of WMAir’s Occupational Hygienists to visit your workplace to determine whether air monitoring is required, at no obligation or cost, please email your contact details to us firstname.lastname@example.org
