Sampling and Monitoring

Articles 223 and 236 of Legislative Decree 81/08 and s.m.i. provide that the employer, in the context of risk assessment, assesses the risk of exposure to hazardous and carcinogenic chemicals. To do this, Legislative Decree 81/08 requires the employer to take into account all available information regarding the chemical agent and working conditions.

The chemical risk assessment can be carried out through algorithms / mathematical models or by personal and / or environmental sampling.

 

The service involves sampling and analysis for the exposure of workers to chemical agents, environments and workstations involved.

Environmental and personal sampling is carried out using official methods or internationally recognized standard methods (UNICHIM Methods, ACGIH,...)


The technical reports produced following sampling and analysis show all the conditions for the sampling carried out, ensuring reproducibility and traceability.

All laboratory tests performed on the samples collected during the investigations are valid for all legal effects.

Eventually measured exposure levels are compared with the values ​​imposed by the applicable standards and should be determined whenever the conditions that may vary exposure to the chemical agent (quantity, mode of use, changes in technologies and implants) are changed or periodically to monitor the exposure of workers and to verify the effectiveness of specific prevention and protection measures implemented.

 

Direct field measurements (microclimate, illumination, noise, electromagnetic fields) are also performed.
