Silica is a very common mineral. It is found in many materials such as sand, concrete, masonry, rock, and granite. The dust created by cutting, grinding, or drilling into these materials can contain crystalline silica particles. These dust particles are very small. You cannot see them. This respirable silica dust causes lung disease and lung cancer. It only takes a very small amount of airborne silica dust to create a health hazard.Learn More
Not sure where to start with assessing chemical exposures? WATSIN is an algorithm developed to predict worker exposure to many industrial processes. It takes into account the duration of the activity, the nature of the process, the controls that are in place and predicts the worker’s exposure. It is faster and because there are no laboratory fees to have samples analyzed, it is a cost-efficient approach to assessing chemical exposure.Learn More
Water leaks or water intrusion can result in mould growth. Mould growth can cause health effects to occupants of homes and commercial buildings. The picture shows how an infrared camera can see moisture intrusion that the eye can’t see. A combination of infrared camera inspections and air testing will tell you if you have a problem and where it is. We even have a take-home mould air test kit.Learn More
