INSPECTION BODY

.

ELECTRICAL FACTORS

Electricity has a thermal, electrolythic and biologic impact on the human body. Working with faulty, unsafe electrical installations and equipment can cause injuries and functional disorders in the human body, and lead to irreversible, deadly consequences. The objective of our inspection activities in the field of workplace electrical safety is to check the reliability of all electrical installations and equipment in your organization and analyse their conformity to the requirements of existing legislation. For this purpose, “HESPA” Inspection Body performs the following inspections:

Inspection of electrical installations, machinery, equipment, and appliances up to and over 1000 V:

  • Insulation resistance
  • Transient resistance of protective grounding and lightning-protection systems
  • Safety switches for zero-sequence currents: activation time, transition resistance, contact voltage and current setup

Inspection of electrical installations, machinery, equipment, and appliances up to 1000 V

  • Impedance Zs of protective conductors

Inspection of insulation resistance of personal protective equipment used for electrical installations above 1000 V electric strength of insulating rods, measuring rods; insulated pliers, current measuring pliers; voltage meters (phase indicators) above 1kV; dielectric gloves; dielectric boots; dielectric mats and runners

Inspection of transformer oil breakdown voltage

PHYSICAL FACTORS

At work or at home, people may be exposed to the adverse physical impacts of the surrounding workplace or home environment such as high noise levels, extremely high or low illumination levels, unhealthy air temperature, humidity, and velocity, and the harmful effects of electromagnetic fields. Legislation requires that the levels of physical factors which affect the health and safety of employees and the general public be kept below the established harmful limits. The objective of our inspection activities in the field of ensuring safety of employees and the population is to measure, analyse and evaluate the conformity of physical factors levels with existing health and safety and environmental legislation. For this purpose, “HESPA” Inspection Body performs the following inspections:

Inspection  (measurement and analysis) of physical factors in the workplace, the household, and the environment

  • Lighting – artificial lighting in the workplace or the household
  • Noise level at the workplace
  • Environmental noise levels
  • Noise at the premises of residential and public buildings
  • Microclimate in the workplace and the household: air temperature, humidity and velocity
  • Vibrations in the workplace: hand-arm and whole body
  • Electric and magnetic fields - measurement and analysis of electric field intensity and magnetic induction of low and high-frequency electric and magnetic fields in the workplace and among the general public

Inspection  (measurement and analysis) of Air conditioning and ventilation installations

Inspection  (measurement and analysis) of Electrochemical protection of underground metal structures stationary potential, polarization potential, grounding systems resistance

CHEMICAL FACTORS

Employees might be subject to the dangerous and unhealthy effect of their working environment which involves emissions of dust and chemical agents.

Legislation has set limits to the levels of emitted chemical agents which might affect employees' health and safety. The objective of our health and safety activities related to chemical agents in the workplace is to measure the emissions of dangerous chemical agents and dust and to analyze the conformity of their levels to existing occupational health and safety legislation. For this purpose, “HESPA” Inspection Body performs the following inspections:

Inspection  (measurement and analysis) physico-chemical factors (chemical agents concentration) in the workplace non-toxic dust in the workzone air

Inspection  (measurement and analysis) of chemical factors (chemical agents concentration) in the workplace chemical agents in the workzone air

Inspection  (measurement and analysis) ofambient air - concentration of dust

ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS

Employees might be subject to the dangerous and unhealthy effect of their working environment which involves presence of artificial sources of electromagnetic radiation. Abnormal levels of electromagnetic radiation can also 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 employees and 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” Inspection Body performs the following inspections:

(measurement and analysis) Inspection of electric and magnetic fields in the workplace and the general public:

  • Electric field intensity
  • Power density
  • Magnetic field intensity
  • Magnetic flux density (magnetic induction)

THERMOGRAPHIC INSPECTION AND ANALYSIS

Infrared thermography is a diagnostic method used to detect defects at industrial sites serving different purposes. In addition to being used as a non-invasive inspection method, infrared thermography is also used as preventive monitoring.

Thermographic inspection and analysis is based on the study of thermal radiation emitted from equipment, appliances, machines, installations, and components of buildings. At the time of measurement, an infrared camera captures heat emitted from the surface subject to inspection, while the radiation emitted from the source is converted into electronic signals and is displayed as an infrared image.

Thermographic inspection is used to detect problems and localize areas which need to be repaired. This process of detecting and troubleshooting problems and defects helps monitor the condition of installations and facilities, control the quality of reconstruction activities, prevent accidents and fires, and achieve a reduction of production and non-production costs.

In order to achieve the objectives above, “HESPA” Inspection Body performs the following inspections:

Thermographic control and analysis of the thermal radiation emitted from equipment, appliances, machines, installations, etc.:

  • Measurement and analysis of thermal emissions using a thermal imaging method

PLAYGROUND SAFETY

Outdoor playgrounds can present health hazardz to people in their vicinity. Hazardous plant species, lack of information boards and signs, inappropriate flooring, faulty facilities and other factors can pose negative and life-threatening consequences to human health. Legal requirements for outdoor playgrounds aim to prevent situations that could put human health in danger. To this end, HESPA Inspection Body offers inspection of:

  • Playground safety through comprehensive document evalution, visual inspection and measurement / inspection
