Fallout Dust Surveys

Workplace Fallout Dust Surveys are conducted to evaluate the quantity of settleable particulate matter on the construction premises against statutory requirements to control air quality risks, and to recommend corrective actions where necessary.

Dust liberated into the ambient air has the potential to negatively affect the health and wellbeing of communities, reduce production yields in croplands, disperse heavy metals into the environment, reduce visibility, contributing to corrosion of buildings, as well as maintenance costs of vehicles and production machinery.

Why are Fallout Dust Surveys important?

Dust fallout can be a major problem arising from various mining, industrial, construction, and farming activities that can have an impact on surrounding communities’ health, infrastructure and agriculture.

Dust fallout monitoring is cost-effective in measuring the amount of dust being deposited onto the ground and provides information to evaluate the effectiveness of control strategies.

Long-term monitoring will give a good indication of dust fallout patterns during different seasons and assist management in making informed decisions to reduce dust fallout.
