Breathing Air Quality Testing



Regular checks are required to identify that there are no contaminates in the supplied air and that sufficient air is provided to the user.

Work Health and Safety Law requires that breathing air must meet specified requirements and tested to an agreed schedule as per Queensland DIVING CODE / AUSTRALIAN STANDARD – AS2299:2015 Commercial Diving & AUSTRALIAN STANDARD – AS1715:2009 Breathing Apparatus.

Testing is conducted by our technicians using the Dräger Breathing Air Test Method, to determine the concentration of oil, water vapour, carbon monoxide (CO), and carbon dioxide (CO2) contained in the breathing air that is delivered to workers. Real-time monitoring equipment is used to determine the oxygen content. The capability of the compressor is assessed and a determination made on its ability to supply sufficient air to each person using a respirator connected to the system.
