Dust Monitoring in Hospitals

Dust Monitoring in Hospitals

We carry out workplace exposure monitoring in Fracture Clinic plaster rooms and Orthotics Laboratory to measure staff exposure to total inhalable and respirable dust.

Levels of these dusts need to be measured in accordance with the methods outlined in the HSE Publications MDHS 14/3.

Inhalable and Respirable Dust Monitoring Procedure

To ensure this is done, we equip each member of staff with personal sampling pumps and monitor their exposure to dust during a normal working period. We then provide you with a report which details the staff exposure levels and outlines any causes for concern, if any.

We recommend that this inhalable and respirable dust monitoring procedure should be carried out every 12 months to ensure continued compliance with Regulation 10 of the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulations 2002 (as amended).
