Measure and demonstrate the performance of your dust management controls

Construction demolition and earthworks have the potential to release large amounts of dust into the air, which can have a significant impact on the local air quality. These events need to be measured accurately so as to ensure mitigation measures are performing effectively. Often construction takes place close to household residents or ecologically sensitive areas giving rise to the need for real-time monitoring. If an area already has a problem with high levels of PM10 or PM2.5 then it will almost certainly need an air quality monitoring scheme/plan to measure the dust emissions released into the local air.

Having the ability to accurately measure PM10 and PM2.5 in real-time whilst capturing and making that data readily available to other users is fast becoming the norm. Giving access to multiple stakeholders via a cloud analytics platform enables construction site operators to keep everyone informed about the performance of the dust management controls in place.

When choosing an environmental dust monitor for a construction site make sure that it has been certified by the Environment Agency under its MCERTS scheme for Indicative ambient particulate monitors. It's also important to check the concentration level that is has been tested to; as a minimum this should be equal to or greater than 190 μg/m3. In addition to this, make sure that the monitor has been tested to measure both PM10 and PM2.5 simultaneously. Always ask to see a copy of the co-location test results and choose the monitor that has the highest correlation to the reference instrument.
