Workplace Dust Monitors
Any dust or particulate, including paper and tissue, has the potential to become a hazardous substance to health under COSHH if it is present in sufficient concentrations that it is equal to or greater than 10 mg/m3 (as a time-weighted average over an eight-hour period) of inhalable dust or 4 mg/m3 (as a time-weighted average over an eight-hour period) of respirable dust.
It is important to assess dust/particulate levels in your workplace by performing a dust survey to identify:
does your workplace have a dust issue
individual workers exposure levels to dust
what tasks generate high levels of dust
where controls may be needed to reduce exposure
As part of the dust survey you may want to do static monitoring as well as personal monitoring to get a complete picture of dust levels within your workplace.
