Wildfire season is upon us. With it comes the potential for workers to be exposed to dangerous smoke composed of harmful chemicals and particulate matter (PM) suspended in the air. These particles can irritate the lungs and cause serious or even fatal health effects such as reduced lung function, bronchitis, worsening of asthma symptoms or even heart failure.
Help Clients and Employers Comply With Regulations
California, Oregon & Washington have addressed the hazards of wildfire smoke exposure and have implemented rules and regulations to protect workers. Review them by clicking the links below:
Rules & Regulations:
Critical Decisions Require Real-Time Data
If the PM level in the air reaches certain levels, workers may need to be sent home and surrounding communities will need to be alerted. Access to real-time, near-reference data allows you make decisions to help keep workers and the community safe.
TSI’s DustTrak Monitors combined with an Eco-Rental Solution telemetry system have the capability to report in 1-minute intervals, so if your PM10 or PM2.5 particles exceed your preset levels on the instrument, alerts will be sent to your mobile device or desktop computer, allowing you to make critical decisions to protect the community.
