Dust Monitoring for Construction Sites

Monitoring and controlling dust levels on construction sites is crucial to the health and wellbeing of workers. To mitigate the spread of this potentially hazardous substance, construction teams need to take a proactive approach to tackling this dangerous issue. 

We undertake independent Duct monitoring of construction and demolition sites. During construction or demolition activities, environmental monitoring can advise if you are nearing nuisance levels, preventing complaints and help in assessing the validity of complaints. We work with some of the largest construction companies in the UK, so we are confident we can provide you a solution to meet your unique project needs.

Air quality testing on construction sites in London

Dust monitoring for construction sites is a process that helps to measure and control the amount of dust particles that are generated during construction activities. This is important because constructing buildings, roads and other infrastructure can have a substantial, temporary impact on local air quality. Operatives can rise dust levels by sawing wood, using power tools such as grinders and grit blasters, and dry sweeping are just some of the tasks that can impact air quality.

Additionally, the size of the space and the duration of the work will influence the concentration of construction dust in the air, and how dangerous it is to breathe.

Dust monitoring can help improve air quality

Dust monitoring can help improve air quality by providing updated guidance on air quality monitoring in the vicinity of demolition and construction sites. Constructing buildings, roads and other infrastructure can have a substantial, temporary impact on local air quality. By monitoring the dust levels and taking appropriate measures to control them, it is possible to reduce the impact of construction activities on air quality.

In the UK, the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations says you must protect against the risks from hazardous construction dusts. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recommends following the ‘Assess, Control and Review model’ to manage the risks associated with construction dust
