      Dust measurements and dust distribution maps

      Breathable total dust measurement

      Analysis of chemicals in working environment

      Asbestos measurements

      Ambient VOC measurements

      Ambient vibration measurements

      Ambient chemical measurements

      Thermal comfort measurements such as heat and humidity

      Lighting (light intensity) measurements

      Heavy metal measurements

      Analysis of vapor and gaseous organic and inorganic substances

      Analysis of extremely dangerous substances (PAH)

Except these personal exposure measurements The following tests and analyzes are carried out as:

      Occupational hygiene measurements
