Breathing Air Testing
It is essential for businesses that utilise air compressors for breathing to regularly test the air for contamination.
If untreated, this could become a serious health risk and will not comply with the required standards to prevent damage to human health and corporate reputation.
At least every three months, or whenever the compressor is moved, the quality of the compressed breathing air supply should be tested. A detailed air quality test will identify the levels of oxygen, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, water content and lubricants in the air, assessing them against the standards defined by the Health and Safety Executive (EH40) and BS EN 12021.
The air quality test needs to not only measure the levels of contaminants within the air but also consider the service and maintenance of the air compressor. Altogether, these factors will highlight if the air quality is fit for purpose and if any defects need to be immediately addressed before the system can be used again.
