VOC Exposure Monitoring
Monitor and control the VOC exposures in your workplace. Keep your staff safe and ensure that you remain compliant.
Exposure to volatile organic compounds (VOCs) occurs in a wide variety of industrial, medical, and office settings.
They are used in solvents, fixing agents, air fresheners, paints and glues. As a result, exposure can occur in most settings. Synergy’s occupational hygiene consultants use the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) from the product manufacturers to see which volatile organic compounds are in use during a task. We can also conduct VOC exposure monitoring to provide a list of the most prevalent compounds. This is useful if there is a mixture of solvents, or when the source is not known. They are generally known as ‘top 10’ or ‘top 5’ VOC analysis. They find unknown compounds and therefore help to identify the health effects of the Volatile organic compound mixture. Furthermore, this allows us to advise on the control measures an employer should use.
As well as, volatile organic compound monitoring, Synergy can also undertake a wide range of other monitoring for other hazards such as:
