EMISSIONS OF HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES
Different production, extraction, processing, and other industrial, agricultural and transport activities, as well as different other economic activities are a source of hazardous emissions emitted into the air which surrounds us. Exceeding the limits to emissions of harmful substances in the environment poses a health threat stemming from air pollution and imposes adverse effects on human health, and the health of animal and plant species. Legislation has set limits to the emissions of harmful substances to the environment which affect the health and well-being of people, animals, and vegetation on our planet.
The objective of our health and safety activities is related to preventing the abnormal emissions of hazardous substances and environmental protection. This includes measurement of the levels of gas and dust emissions released in the environment, and assessment of their safety to human and environmental health through analysis of their conformity to existing laws and regulations. For this purpose, “HESPA” Testing Laboratory is specialized in:
Measurement and analysis of emissions of harmful substances emitted in the atmospheric air by stationary sources - chemical agents
Measurement and analysis of emissions of harmful substances emitted in the atmospheric air by stationary sources - concentration of dust
Environmental noise affects people and nature alike. High levels of environmental noise may have adverse effects on the environment and its inhabitants in the proximity of emitting sites.
The noise emitted by industrial installations, facilities and activities, and the noise caused by different modes of transportation as well as different economic activities, affect people both physically and phycologically, as they create discomfort in people's basic activities including sleep, rest, study, work, and communication. Exposure to noise can lead to irritability and health problems, such as hearing loss and cardiovascular damage.
Environmental noise is also perceived as one of the main environmental issues, as it has an impact on wildlife. It creates long-term consequences, such as changes in migration routes and allocation of animals outside of their preferred feeding and breeding grounds.
Legislation requires the estabilshment of favorable conditions for public health and welfare and environmental protection through development and implementation of an integrated approach and measures for environmental noise management. These include periodic measurements, assessment and control of environmental noise, and development of measures for its reduction and prevention.
The objective of our health and safety activities is to prevent any negative effects of environmental noise on human health and the environment. This includes periodic measurements of the levels of environmental noise emitted by industrial and other sources. The aim is to ensure that the levels of environmental noise are safe for human health and the environment, and are in compliance with the laws and regulations on health and safety and environmental protection.
In the field of environmental noise management, „HESPA“ Testing Laboratory is specialized in:
Environmental noise measurement and analysis of:
- Equivalent noise level
- Noise level at the point of impact
- Total sound power level
The general public might be subject to the dangerous and unhealthy effects of the surrounding environment which involves presence of artificial sources of electromagnetic radiation. Abnormal levels of electromagnetic radiation can have adverse effects on the population in the vicinity of the sources of emissions.
Legislation has set limits to the levels of electromagnetic fields which might affect the health and safety of the general public. The objective of our health and safety activities related to electromagnetic radiation is to measure the levels of electromagnetic fields emitted by artificial sources and assess the safety of humans exposed to the effects of these fields. For this purpose, “HESPA” Testing Laboratory performs the following activities:
Measurement and analysis of electric and magnetic fields among the general public:
- Electric field intensity
- Power density
- Magnetic field intensity
