Digitizing respirable asbestos fibers (IRSST 243)

When working on a site where the presence of asbestos is problematic, asbestos fiber concentration must be measured at least once per shift, given the high risk involved. These measures make it possible to maintain a minimum level of exposure risk by limiting workers’ exposure to different types of asbestos fibres and different respiratory equipment.

Measuring fiber concentration at the end of the work also enables us to establish a return to normal before dismantling the enclosure.

A similar type of test can also be used to estimate the exposure to respirable asbestos fibers of occupants of a building not undergoing any particular work.

Our analysts offer a fast, reliable service to submit reports within 24 hours of receiving samples. Analyses are carried out in accordance with IRSST Method 243, and LAB’EAU-AIR-SOL participates in quality control tests under CEAEQ’s CQ fibres program.
