Dust Consultancy

Dust Monitoring is important because health can be affected short and long term by personal exposure to dust. Air Spectrum provide Occupational Health Assessments and a range of dust monitors for both boundary and personal applications through our specialist department, Spectrum Environmental Support.

What is Dust Monitoring?

Dust is defined as any solid particle suspended in air or that has settled onto a surface following suspension. Often the term ‘Particle Matter’ is used to define dust. Measurements identify quantities of PM10 and PM2.5 to define amounts of course and fine dust present. The effects of dust include simple annoyance on the lower scale or increased morbidity and mortality at the more serious end of the spectrum. Additionally, dust can cause environmental health issues such as plant death and water pollution. It is therefore important to monitor dust and have a management structure ready to react to situations as they arise.

Dust can cause havoc on a community if it is not contained at source correctly. It can lead to environmental health concerns and nuisance complaints if the dust is not mitigated. Problems can arise from an ongoing operation such as waste transfer stations or from short term events such as construction and demolition.

How can Dust Monitoring help?

With onsite assessments, our team can determine the sources, take measurements and produce dust models to outline problem areas and thus give a more detailed plan. Such in-depth assessments help to provide tailor-made dust management plans to target every issue within all industries.

Regardless of whether you have a current issue with dust or need advice for a future project, we can advise and assist with technical knowledge, assessments and abatement equipment. Call today to discuss how we can support you on 01905 362 100.
