At ADE, we offer an extensive range of air monitoring services for a wide range of clients and situations including for the workplace, hazard exposures and environmental. Our team of Environmental Consultants will perform investigations tailored specifically to client’s needs and can range from a preliminary survey through to detailed Employee Exposure Assessments, which can determine potential exposure to certain elements such as indoor air quality, noise levels, exposure to chemicals, asbestos etc. Our team will recommend engineering controls, personal protective equipment (PPE) or remedial action as necessary.

All ADE reports issued include advice and recommendations on whether environmental and/or contract standards are met and if any remedial actions are required.

Typical indoor air quality parameters monitored by ADE are:

  • Carbon dioxide (CO2)
  • Carbon monoxide (CO)
  • Nitrix oxide (NO)
  • Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2)
  • Inspirable and respirable dust
  • Metals in Dust
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Formaldehyde
  • Asbestos
  • Diesel Particulate Matter
  • Ozone
  • Temperature, Humidity, Wind speed

In addition to the above, a chimney emissions test is available, which monitors the type and concentration of emission gas streams from chimney stacks or other designated emission points. Typically this would test for:

  • Total suspended particulates (TSP),
  • Sulphur Oxides (SOx),
  • Nitrogen Oxides (NOx),
  • Chlorides and fluorides,
  • Polycyclic aromatic components and
  • Dioxins
