Solvents and gases are found in many products used in manufacturing. Common examples includes paints, cleaning products, and adhesives. Due to the variety of chemicals, the health effects can range from acute to chronic and cumulative. The Workplace Safety and Health Division may issue an Improvement Order for a Workplace Exposure Assessment. This involves either modelling or measuring worker exposure to products used in the workplace.
For companies that use multiple products, Winnipeg Air Testing can perform an initial site visit to observe the types of processes and manner in which chemicals are used in the plant. Winnipeg Air Testing reviews SDSs provided by the client to determine which chemicals have the highest potential for airborne worker exposure. A sampling plan and quotation will be developed for the specific chemicals using accredited lab methods. A full comprehensive report comparing the results to the standards along with recommendations for controls will be provided. Please contact us for a custom quote.
