We carry out workplace exposure monitoring for endoscopy procedure rooms and endoscopy clean rooms in hundreds of hospitals across the UK.
Endoscopy Procedure Rooms (Entonox)
As staff tend to move in an out of procedure rooms where patients are self-administering entonox, we use personal sampling to monitor overall exposure levels during a shift.
Personal sampling tubes are worn by staff throughout their shift.
These tubes are then analysed to determine the amount of Nitrous Oxide the team members have been exposed to. Measured exposure is compared to the Workplace Exposure Limit, (100 ppm for Nitrous Oxide) to ensure that exposure is compliant with the COSHH Regulations 2002 (as amended). If high exposures are measured, suggestions for reducing exposure will be made.

Endoscope Washrooms (Peracetic and acetic acid)
Monitoring within an endoscope washroom is carried out to assess staff exposure to peracetic and acetic acid.
Our monitoring consultant remains in the washroom at all times, allowing them to analyse the data and highlight any problem areas to the client whilst on site. On completion of monitoring a comprehensive report is produced outlining the results, any issues and recommendations for further action.
