Factor Measurements

Factor Measurements contribute significantly to the identification of risks and the evaluation of the risk in workplaces by assessing the exposure of workers to them, as well as the possibility of burdening their health. Factor is defined as the physical, chemical and biological agent that exists in the work environment and may be harmful for the health of employees or otherwise dangerous, regardless of its physical state. 

The measurement of the factors used or created in the workplace is among the basic obligations of every employer (KNYAE 3850/2010, article 37). The employer must control the concentration or intensity of the factors in the workplace and the levels of exposure of the workers to them.. 

The Measurements are carried out by a Special Team of Biosafety Researchers, using appropriate, calibrated equipment. The methodology followed for carrying out the measurements and drawing the conclusions is always in accordance with the Greek Legislation. The results of the measurements are sent to the Employer in a special Report, which presents the measured values of the factors, the limits of the legislation and/or international standards as well as the evaluation of the Health & Safety conditions in the workplaces, always in relation to the measured parameters.

Biological Factors 

Biosafety provides measurement services for biological factors such as viruses, bacteria, fungi and extracts certified results in collaboration with an accredited chemical laboratory & medical body. 

As part of the measurements of biological factors, sampling and measurements are carried out for the existence of the Legionella bacterium. The timely performance of sampling and measurements to diagnose the existence of the Legionella bacterium is the basic preventive solution to protect the health of employees.
