Factor Measurements

Factor Measurements contribute to the identification and the assessment of risks in workplaces significantly by assessing the exposure of employees to them, as well as the possibility of burdening their health. A factor is defined as any physical, chemical and biological factor that exists in the work environment and can be harmful for the health of employees or dangerous in another way, 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 workplaces and the levels of exposure of the employees 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.
