Inhalable and Respirable Dust

Many environmental and occupational settings are known to have issues with airborne dust. Certain components of some dust may be hazardous to health and as such personal exposure to these substances in the occupational environment should be assessed. Dusts may be generated by an industrial process or other activities within a workplace or the wider environment. Airborne dust may be classsified as inhalable dust or respirable dust. 

CES is IANZ accredited to carry out gravimetric analysis for particulate collected on filters. CES recommends regular monitoring of the workplace to determine compliance to the current workplace exposure or environmental standards. See Worksafe for information regarding competent persons for health and exposure monitoring.

We can provide the gravimetric weight of particulates collected on filters and concentration based on sampling information provided, of a range of contaminants in the workplace including; inhalable dust, respirable dust, silica (quartz and crystobalite), metal dust (welding fume), and wood dust (soft and hard wood). We also have a range of equipment for hire.

If you have any questions please send us an email or use the enquiries form outlining your situation.
