We have a wide accreditation by ENAC according to UNE-EN-ISO/IEC 17025 for the analysis of chemical and biological contaminants in work atmospheres.
Sampling supports sampling
Technical advice for the sampling of chemical, carcinogenic and biological contaminants, and supply of appropriate sampling media according to the type of hygienic and contaminant assessment (ED, EC, active, passive, etc.).
Reference analytical methods
Analytical methodology based on reference methods (INSST, NIOSH, OSHA, HSE, INRS) for:
- Individual chemical contaminants: Ammonia, Cr VI, Formaldehyde, Methanol, Particulate Matter, Radon, etc.
- Chemical contaminant families: Amines, Aldehydes, VOCs, Isocyanates, Metals, Mercaptans, etc.
Homologated laboratory for fiber counting
Approval by the Labor Authority for the Counting of asbestos and other fibers in air (MTA/MA-051/A014) under the accreditation password CM-ALA No. 1.
Accredited Laboratory for determination of Crystalline Silica
Accredited by ENAC and approved by ITC for the determination of crystalline silica (respirable fraction) in air according to MTA/MA – 057/A17 and UNE 81550 procedures.
Active participation in standards development working groups
Participants as technical experts in AENOR working groups for the development of standards for the evaluation of Chemical Agents thanks to a team with more than 20 years of experience in the development of analytical methodologies and knowledge of the use of the latest generation equipment.
ENAC-accredited testing of biological contaminants for the evaluation of the exposure index in the work environment.
- Aerobic microorganisms at 36 ºC
- Molds and yeasts
Why is occupational
The evaluation of the risks derived from inhalation exposure to a hazardous chemical agent must include the measurement of the concentrations of the chemical agent in the air, in the breathing zone of the worker, and its subsequent comparison with the corresponding ALV. The laboratory is a key player in this risk assessment, addressing needs such as:
- Methods of analysis based on standards (UNE, INSST, ISO, NIOSH, OSHA, HSE, etc).
- Use of sampling media suitable for the intended purpose.
- Sensitivity of the laboratory’s analytical methods
- Accreditations and approvals
