Airborne dust is not just a mining problem
Sampling for Inhalable and Respirable dust will be undertaken in accordance with AS 3640-2009: Workplace atmospheres—Method for sampling and gravimetric determination of inhalable dust, and AS 2985-2009: Workplace atmospheres—Method for sampling and gravimetric determination of respirable dust.
It is expected that monitoring equipment will be worn at least between 6-12 hours to ensure a representative sample is obtained. Personal sampling will be undertaken over representative time periods with GCG undertaking task observations where permitted.
We perform our own gravimetric analysis of all Inhalable, Respirable and Welding Fume samples in one of our NATA accredited laboratories. We use NATA accredited external laboratories analysis of any contaminants outside our NATA accreditation.
As an outcome, we provide detailed hygiene monitoring reports outlining the results, findings, and recommendations from the monitoring. GCG will provide copies of the NATA laboratory reports and personalised Employee Feedback.
We currently provide our ongoing clients with direct access to the online GCG Reporting System (GRS) enabling our clients real-time visibility of their data.
