Asbestos air monitoring is used to measure airborne fibre levels and is conducted to help ensure safe levels of airborne asbestos fibres before, during or after asbestos remediation takes place.
Pennington Choices have a dedicated fleet of mobile laboratories capable of undertaking swift and impartial air monitoring to compliment all types of asbestos removal projects.
Clients can view and download results instantly via our online system (TEAMS) for all air monitoring undertaken on site and are able to provide hard copies to all involved parties on site once testing is complete.
Pennington Choices offer the following air monitoring services:
- Certificate of reoccupation – following removal of ACMs (usually notifiable) this certificate is required to ensure the area within the removal scope is thoroughly clean and safe to re-occupy. It consists of four stages which assesses the quality of asbestos removal. The enclosure must pass all stages and is vital to ensure that the work area is clean and suitable for subsequent use.
- Reassurance air testing – usually undertaken following removal of ACMs and also to reassure that where asbestos is still present, that fibre levels are safe.
- Background air testing – usually undertaken whilst contractors are setting up enclosures for asbestos removal.
- Leak air testing – undertaken during asbestos removals to assess enclosure effectiveness.
- Personal monitoring – undertaken during asbestos removals to ensure control methods are being adhered to. Also used for checking for RPE suitability.
Our air monitoring services are UKAS accredited, conform to ISO/IEC17025:2005 and adhere to guidelines documented in HSG248 Asbestos: The analysts’ guide for sampling, analysis and clearance.
All our highly trained and certified analysts have obtained BOHS proficiency modules P403 “Asbestos fibre counting” P404 “Air sampling for asbestos and MMMF and requirements for a Certificate of Reoccupation following clearance of asbestos” certificates and have undergone training and rigorous auditing to ensure their competence in carrying out the tasks.
To maintain our high standards and UKAS accreditation we are required to participate in Regular Inter-Laboratory Counting Exchange (RICE) which assesses the proficiency of laboratories counting asbestos fibres in the air.
