The presence of airborne contaminants in the workplace can present a significant risk to health and safety. The types of airborne contaminants can vary widely and may include:-
Airborne particulates (silica, total dust, wood dust, lead paint)
Mists (pesticides, oil)
Welding fumes and associated gases
Insulation materials (asbestos and synthetic mineral fibres)
Microbial contaminants (bacteria, fungal spores, mould).
