We Only Focus On Safety Because It\\\’s Important

soil contamination testing melbourne

Potentially polluted land is subjected to soil contamination testing in Melbourne. For a variety of situations, such as environmental site surveys and environmental audit tasks, our environmental consultants build site-specific soil assessment methodologies. For off-site soil removal, proper checks before buying or selling land, municipal town planning, restricting applications, and EPA compliance, soil testing may be necessary.

Soil testing must be done in order to comply with EPA outside contaminated soil removal criteria. In situations like site contamination cleanup and remediation operations (such as removing underground storage tanks) or when any extra soils are produced during development works, contaminated soil removal is necessary.

In order to provide credible testing services, we assure that all soils are analyzed by analytical laboratories accredited by the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA).

Our lab is NATA approved to test soils for the presence of asbestos.

When contaminated soil is discovered, we implement the proper environmental management to reduce any negative effects on the environment and human health.

when you should schedule a respiratory fit test:

To establish a reliable respirator seal, anybody who must wear a snug facepiece while performing their regular day-to-day work or while participating in emergency response operations should undergo a fit test.

respiratory fit testing Australia may be required for employees in the following sectors:

  • first responders, such as emergency services (EMS), firefighters, and police officers;
  • healthcare, including nursing staff, doctors, long-term care facilities, dentists, orthodontists, and dental hygienists;
  • oil and gas mining;
  • chemical production;
  • pharmacy and research laboratories.

How frequently should respirator fit tests be performed?

Fit testing is required by compliance standards both before and after the first one to two years of use. Air purifying, the air supplying, N, R, and P series filtering facepiece respirator types are all compatible for use with the instrument used in quantitative respiratory fit testing to assess the efficacy of the seal. For the purpose of detecting leakage, quantitative fit testing doesn’t quite rely on your senses of taste, smell, or irritability.

Instead, a set of moving, breathing, and talking activities that mimic the actions made in the field are performed by the user while the respirator fit testing Australia apparatus measures the fit in real-time.

What do participants discover while preparing for respirator fit tests?

Our respiratory professionals will discuss the following issues during the fit test:

  • the appropriate wearing and doffing of the mask
  • how to use and maintain a respirator, including how to conduct seal inspections
  • of the distinguishing features of N, R, and P-Series respirator masks, as well as the distinction between half- and full-facepiece respirators.
  • Every test-passing participant receives a wallet card with information about the respirator that was equipped with, including its size.

Their company will receive a report detailing their training, which they can use to preserve records. Please visit www.edgegroup.net.au for more information.
