A documentary was recently aired on the BBC regarding air quality in urban areas. The aim of the program was to reduce air pollution levels on one day on a highly polluted street in Birmingham.

We have been undertaking some sampling to assess the air quality in a house next to a busy road to see how often and by how much limits are being exceeded. This primarily requires the monitoring of particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) that are some of the most harmful pollutants and linked to the use of diesel cars. This is an area where more work and monitoring is required with 40,000 deaths link to poor air quality in the UK each year.

Statistics from the latest HSE report on health and safety at work

Health and safety in the workplace is generally improving, however many statistics are remaining the same and still far too high. Poor occupational hygiene practice can result in the cost of work related ill health which it itself has a financial cost. It is down to both employers and employees to work together to reduce these impacts.

Read more about these statistics and trends here: http://www.bohs.org/latest-health-safety-statistics-encouraging-cost-work-related-ill-health-still-high/

For any enquires for our Occupation hygiene services please call on 01329 287 777 or visit our website.
