Air Monitoring

ESP provides an extensive air monitoring service for both workplace (generally indoor) hazard exposures (Occupational Exposures) and environmental (outdoor) air monitoring requirements.

Investigations are tailored to client’s needs and can range from a preliminary survey through to detailed exposure assessments with statistical evaluation.

Workplace Air Monitoring determines the actual exposure of an employee to noise, chemical or other hazards while conducting their normal work. Para-occupational or ‘area’ air monitoring can also be conducted if required.
