Workplace audiometric testing is required by the NSW Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011 every two (2) years. AS 1269.4:2005 Occupational Noise Management Part 4 Audiometric Testing recommends audiometric testing on an annual basis. It is recommended that annual audiometric testing be undertaken particularly when there is potential exposure to ototoxic agents or hand arm vibration (HAV).
The health effects of welding fume can vary considerably. This is due to the health effects being dependant on the particular metal, fluxes and cleaning agents that may be present within the welding process. State Workplace Health and Safety Regulations require the airborne concentration of welding fume does not exceed the exposure standard for each constituent of the welding fume.
Mobile plant operators and transport workers in road, rail and air are at significant risk of whole body vibration. The potential health effects include primarily back pain and injury, however there is also reported health concerns relating to reproductive, digestive disorders.
Hydrogen Gas Explosion Risk from Battery Charging Rooms - 10 July 2012
During battery charging, oxygen and hydrogen are released after a cell has achieved approximately 95 % of its charge, during boost charging or overcharging. The resultant risk is required to be assessed under Part 3.1 of the NSW Workplace Health and Safety Regulation 2011
Breathing air quality testing to AS 1715:2009 Appendix A for workers using compressed air line or cylinder respirators provides reassurance that the air they are breathing is adequately safe in their harsh working environments.
Polystyrene is a commercial plastic made from styrene monomer. We discuss the health effetcs, air monitoring and potential exposures realting to airborne styrene.
Changes in lung function and increased risk of developing occupational asthma may result in excessive flour dust expousre. We dicuss the health effects, exposure stadnards and air monitoring standards to assess risks associated with flour dust.
Safe Environments have released its dedicated website to noise testing and consulting services which can be found at www.NoiseTesting.info. The new website seeks to provide clear, transparent and objective information for employers, OHS professionals and workers alike to reduce potential health risks associated with noise exposure.
