AIR QUALITY 4T CONSULTANTS RELIABLE DATA . SOLUTIONS . KNOWLEDGE Dust and (PM) Particle Matter are air pollutants that can cause nuisance and serious health issues. INTRO


Dust and “Particulate Matter” (referred to as PM) are air pollutants that can cause nuisance and serious health problems.

All air borne particulate matter is made up of particles of varying sizes and shapes, and the size of the particles influences the potential health dangers.   Therefore, health and environmental authorities require organisations  to monitor what particulate matter is released into the environment.   Particles less than 10 micrometers in size are the ones that are of real concern, because when they are breathed into human lungs, or even get into our bloodstream, they accumulate within our bodies.



Applications of air quality monitoring:

  • Depositional dust monitoring for Environmental Authority compliance and Environmental Impact Studies
  • Air quality (e.g. PM10 and PM2.5) monitoring for Health and Safety, Environmental Authority compliance, Health and Safety
  • Air quality modelling for Health and Safety planning
  • Air quality modelling so that risk can be assessed and mitigated
