What is Bioaerosol Monitoring?
Exposure to bioaerosols can be detrimental to health. Bioaerosols are also referred to as biological aerosol or organic dust and they are airborne microorganisms such as bacteria, actinomycetes, fungi, pollen, moulds or viruses. Typically, Bioaerosols are not visible to the human eye and are able to penetrate deeply into our respiratory systems. Constant and cumulative exposure to bioaerosols can cause a range of health problems including gastrointestinal illness, bronchitis, and cancer. Bioaerosol monitoring helps you to ensure the safety of your workforce and keeps you compliant to Environment Agency standards. Envirocare can offer you complete Bioaerosol Monitoring and analysis from both captured (stack) and uncaptured (ambient) sources.
It is important to monitor bioaerosols in the workplace to ensure that exposure is controlled as much as possible to protect yourself and employees from consequent health problems. Measures can include PPE, establishment of risk zones and engineered controls (such as air-conditioned vehicle cabs).
