AM520 SidePak used to determine tasks where high levels of potentiality harmful silica particulates were generated.
Stone Benchtop Company.
With the heightened awareness of the dangers of Respirable Crystalline Silica (RCS), the stone benchtop company wanted to identify the tasks and areas which generated high levels of particulates so control measures could be implemented.
The AM520 real-time aerosol monitor was used on an employee that handled the engineered benchtop for a shift. The employee required minimal instructions and the instrument was unobtrusive enough as to not affect his tasks.
The AM520 data was graphed showing specific times where high levels of particulates were recorded, which was then correlated back to specific tasks. This understanding of which tasks generated potentially harmful silica particulate exposure meant that control measures were able to be implemented, resulting in reduce liability to employer from potential unsafe workplace.
