Are You Compliant To Breathing Air Quality Standards

Are You Compliant To Breathing Air Quality Standards

So Are You Compliant To Breathing Air Quality Standards ? Its a very good question.

If your equipment being used requires compressed air, then regular and accurate testing should be done to ensure that the air quality is up to par.

The COSHH Approved Code of Practice says, “The quality of the air supplied to a breathing apparatus should be tested at least once every three months, and more frequently when the quality of the air supplied cannot be assured.”

Hydropayne Services’ skilled engineers are capable of simple and accurate air quality testing at the point of use, thanks to Safe-Air-Testers’ cutting-edge technology.

After taking the test, you will receive a job sheet report from the engineer. Our office will then process it and issue a certificate.

Are you compliant to breathing air quality standards?

BS EN 12021 states: Contaminants in compressed air for breathing apparatus shall not exceed levels which can cause toxic or harmful effects. All contaminants should be kept at low levels, far below the national exposure limit.

How often is breathing air testing required?

The compressor and filter can deteriorate rapidly. As a result, the HSE demands that testing be done at least every three months. They also want compressed air quality testing before each usage of equipment that is not used very often. Employers must keep track of these tests and repairs for at least five years as required by law.
