With a seminar on Controlling and Monitoring Emissions on Waste Management Sites to kick-start the second morning of AQE, Zoe Cooper, business development director, Energy & Waste, SOCOTEC, is the ideal person to report back on her day representing ESG on the stand.
SOCOTEC has a long history of testing air quality and emissions, providing a wide range of monitoring and analytical services across the UK. With the Air Quality and Emissions Show taking place today and tomorrow, Trevor Worrall, business development manager, Air Quality and Emissions, SOCOTEC, was on stand providing advice on air quality monitoring and testing.
With the Emissions conference taking place as part of today’s event, it was the right time for us to catch up with Trevor to find out what had been discussed.
Just half way through the first month of 2017, many will be unsurprised to read that London has already surpassed the annual limit for air pollution according to data from the city’s air quality testing and monitoring system. We were interested in reading the news and views on this and as we thought you might be too, we have compiled the top air quality stories pertaining to the capital from this month:
Bill Halkett, occupational hygienist, Environment & Safety Services, SOCOTEC, explores why rail operators need to be aware of the hazards of diesel exhaust fumes, and explains the steps they can take to uphold worker health and safety.
In light of recent changes to health and safety regulations for mines, which came into force last year, mining expert, Philip Shead, a specialist ventilation consultant at SOCOTEC, explores which factors mine operators need to take into account to optimise air quality and ensure the wellbeing of their employees.
SOCOTEC provides a range of specialist chemistry services and tests, including ICP analysis, BTEX testing, air quality analysis and metal testing. SOCOTEC’s Becky Batham, explains the importance of chemical analysis to both the environment and public safety.
