KEHS adds Hydrofracking Air Monitoring to its Suite of Services
(Hollidaysburg, PA) Keystone Environmental Health and Safety Services Inc. (KEHS) is pleased to announce that we can now provide hydrofracking air monitoring for numerous pollutants. This list includes, but is not limited to: Respirable Dust, Silica Quartz, Volatile Organic Compounds (Benzene, Toluene, Xylene (BTEX), Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), Ethylbenzene) and noise. Hydrofracking can also create other potential hazards including Diesel Particulates, Acid Gases (HCl) Aldehydes, such as glutaraldehyde and unwanted metals such as lead contamination.
Hydraulic Fracturing is used across the country to tap into previously unreachable oil and natural gas locked within deep rock formations. It involves the injection of water, silica sand, and small amounts of chemicals into wells so that oil and/or natural gas can flow out of the well.
A 2010 study by NIOSH found there are worker exposures that need to be managed during this process. In 2012 OSHA/NIOSH published a Hazard Alert on ensuring workers in hydraulic fracturing operations have appropriate protection from silica exposure.
One of your first steps you can take in determining whether or not there are dangerous exposures on a hydrofracking site is personal air monitoring.
“With the most current technology, we will strive to provide our clients with the highest quality service in a cost effective and timely manner. With the economic boom from the Marcellus Shale gas industry, worker safety is a major priority for many skate holders in our region”, said Darin Tornatore, Director of Operations at KEHS.
