OSHA Silica Compliance Consulting:
KERAMIDA is the industry leader in Silica Compliance consulting. We provide on-site professionals to analyze processes, tasks, equipment, air movement, and other pertinent factors for the targeted reduction of airborne silica. We have developed a unique Silica Mapping methodology to define the presence, quantity, and spatial location of respirable silica in nearly any type of facility.
Indoor Air Quality Monitoring:
KERAMIDA performs indoor air quality monitoring for all types of hazards including formaldehyde and asbestos. We have extensive experience in providing indoor air quality testing for a variety of industries. Our professionals have expertise in, and routinely perform, the following evaluations:
Single-chemical exposure determinations for chemical substances such as formaldehyde and asbestos, which are subject to a specific OSHA standard.
Evaluation of multiple chemical exposures, such as paint vapors and welding fumes.
Evaluation of indoor air quality for biological irritants (molds and fungi) and comfort factors (temperature, humidity, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide concentrations).
Monitoring in foundries and similar environments to evaluate exposures to hazardous particulates, such as crystalline silica and asbestos. The measurements evaluated total dust exposure and respirable particulate fractions.
Evaluations of employee exposures as 8-hour Time Weighted Averages, 15-minute Short Term Exposure Limits, and instantaneous area samples.
Our health and safety consultants have extensive experience in evaluating employee noise exposures in industrial settings for compliance with OSHA's Occupational Noise Exposure standard (1910.95).
