Environmental Breathing Air Testing (including sick building syndrome)

AQL can test and monitor the breathing air quality in most environments including the testing of breathing air quality in offices, computer rooms, factories, garages etc, as well as testing of outside ambient air.  Tests can be performed according to customer's individual specifications for whatever contaminants may be suspected to be present within the air. For particulate of chemicals, a full report with clear explanations will be provided and we will work with you to help prevent any recurrence.

Isocynate Clearance Time Testing

Spray booth clearance time should be measured annually and the time recorded and displayed on the entrance to the spray booth. This is required to ensure that painters and other staff do not enter the booth without RPE until it is safe to do so.

AQL will perform the test and provide the required certificate for display outside the booth.

Nitrous Dioxide and Sulphur Dioxide

Air Quality Limited will supply the equipment and give clear instructions on how to check your work area. We will have the results analysed and report the laboratory findings and then work with you to correct any problems which may occur.

Legionnaires Disease

Legionnaires disease is contracted by inhaling water droplets containing the bacterium Legionella Pneumophilla which are suspended in the air. The bacteria may be found in many purpose built water systems such as cooling towers, evaporative condensers and any form of water storage tank (for example a whirlpool spa). Recent outbreaks have highlighted the potential severity of contracting this disease - a case in Kent in August 2009 proved fatal.

AQL will arrange for the testing of a sample of your water by a UKAS accredited laboratory with a report of their findings issued within 21 days of them receiving the sample.

Lung Function Testing

Lung function tests are required on a yearly basis for employees using isocyanate paints in order to prevent the occurence of occupational asthma.

AQL perform these tests on site and report the results to you whilst handling patient confidentiality. We advise on the types of Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) for use in your field of work to ensure the best possible protection. We will also provide training in the use and maintenance of the Respiratory Protective Equipment to help ensure the good health of you or your employees. 

Mask Face Fit Testing

Initial fit testing should be done for new masks as an inadequate fit will significantly reduce the protection to the wearer, thereafter an annual test is required.

AQL will perform the test on site and provide the relevant certification. 

Compressor Certification

AQL will perform an initial visual inspection of the compressor also accessing its data screen. We also service, maintain and repair compressors.

Tank certification
