Why Measure Dust Levels?

Monitoring of a worker’s health is legally required when the hazard has the potential to exceed exposure limits or the level of risk from the hazard varies. Health and Safety at Work (General Risk and Workplace Management) Regulations 2016 states that a Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking with management or control of a workplace must ensure that no person at the workplace is exposed to a substance hazardous to health in a concentration that exceeds the prescribed exposure standard for the substance. Therefore, businesses must have a method of managing dust and a strict monitoring program to ensure dust exposure is kept to an acceptable level and statutory exposure limits/standards are met.
