Chemicals and Aerosols in the Working Environment

Chemicals and aerosols are one of the most common hazards in human's working and Living environment. The effects of exposure to those factors can be Local (irritating), systemic (changes in the central and peripheral nervous system, cardiovascular system) and generalised (allergenic). Exposure to harmful chemical substances and aerosols can also have delayed consequences, such as neoplastic diseases, genetic changes causing pathologies in offspring.

The Institute's activities:

  • identification, assessment and reduction or elimination of chemical or aerosol air pollutants at workstations
  • studies of toxic effects of chemical substances and preparations
  • identification of chemical substances emitted into the air in the working and living environment
  • testing the efficiency of ventilation or air-conditioning systems and filtration and ventilation devices
  • prediction and measurement of the emission of dusts in the working environment
  • testing filtration materials and air filters used in ventilation and air-conditioning systems
  • calibration and testing equipment for determination of chemical air pollutants in the working and living environment
  • development of chemical safety data sheets.
