Asbestos Air Monitoring

Asbestos Air Monitoring

Under some circumstances, it may be necessary to conduct air monitoring. Sampling for airborne asbestos fibres is carried out to assess the asbestos health risk associated with the presence of atmospheric asbestos fibres. These samples are then analysed at a NATA proved laboratory.

ATR can organise several types of air monitoring including:

  • Background air monitoring – assess the presence of asbestos fibres prior to the removal of asbestos
  • Exposure monitoring – sampling exposure to asbestos fibres in a person’s breathing zone
  • Control monitoring – is the air monitoring carried out in the areas surrounding any asbestos removal project. Used to verify the effectiveness of the engineering controls implemented to ensure that no asbestos fibres escape the asbestos removal zone

Whatever your air monitoring requirements, ATR has the solution.
