Occupational Testing, Dust Testing in Australia
- Asbestos Air Monitoring
- Bacteria, Fungi and other Microorganisms
- Inorganic Gases and Fumes
- Metals and Metalloids
Asbestos air monitoring is important if you plan to renovate or are working with asbestos containing building materials that have been damaged or have deteriorated over time, so that fibres might have been released and are present in the air.
Our NATA Accredited Envirolab laboratories have extensive experience and are specialised in identifying the presence and effectiveness of control measures for asbestos in soil, water and air. Our laboratory testing includes:
- Fibre counting in airborne fibres
- Fibre counting in water samples
- Asbestos identification in building materials
- Asbestos in soil
Biological contamination by bacteria and fungi of indoor air may cause adverse health effects in homes, businesses and industry. Regular monitoring of air quality is vital in hospitals and surgical suites, intensive care units (ICUs), pharmacies and other patient care facilities.
Common factors associated with the growth of these microorganisms include water leakage, high humidity and poor ventilation. Moisture related to HVAC components, such as cooling coils and humidifiers in poorly maintained air conditioning systems, may provide favourable conditions for bacterial growth and contamination.

Dust is one of many sources of air pollution or environmental contamination.
While dust may occur naturally in the environment, excessive amounts of dust particles may be released within various industries and mechanical processes. In mining and construction, the processes of drilling, quarrying, blasting, grinding, crushing and sawing of rock, wood, ore and metal will break or separate these solid materials into solid particles. When dispersed into the air, these particles may result in higher levels of airborne dust.
In workplaces, dust may build up in poorly ventilated premises. When inhaled by those working in close proximity to the source, dust may cause problems with breathing, damage lungs and other respiratory organs and aggravate other existing health issues.
