Air quality testing

During work or in your home environment you can be exposed to hazardous materials. Headaches, fatigue, irritations of the eyes, nose and throat and longer term serious health complaints may follow as a result. By establishing or ruling out exposure, we create a healthy and comfortable climate for you.

Health & Safety, air quality and soil air measurements

It may be that you have had complaints about air quality, have requirements in respect of the granting of a permit or that as a result of a risk inventory you want to know if you or your employees are exposed to hazardous materials. CEGE Caribbean has broad in-house expertise of the implementation of air quality metering according to NEN 689 in all of these cases. These may be exposure measurements or inside air measurements for hazardous materials, but also exposure measurements of the risks arising from the evaporation of soil contaminants. We always report in compliance with the current standards.

Stationary or personal

We inventorise your complaint or question and establish the metering strategy in consultation with you. In doing so we can meter at a fixed point (stationary) or on a person (personal). An accredited laboratory analyses the samples taken and CEGE’s expert assesses the results against (legally) established limits to establish whether the exposure constitutes a potential health risk. He advises you on the management of the situation according to the health and safety hygiene strategy.

Air quality measurements

CEGE Caribbean carries out air quality metering for the following substances:

  • Dust, such as inhalable dust, respirable dust, quartz dust and wood dust
  • Solid substances, such as asbestos, heavy metals and soot
  • Gases/vapours, such as VOCl, BTEXN, welding fumes and chemical substances from factories/production processes
  • Yeast, fungi and bacteria

Not only for businesses

CEGE Caribbean also works for individuals, schools and clubs. For example, we have taken exposure measurements for chemical substances, quartz dust and wood dust in the crawl spaces of houses and in vocational colleges and during production processes. We have also carried out tests for the hazards of respirable dust and yeasts and fungi in tunnels.
