Members of the dental team are exposed daily to mercury-rich dust and mercury vapour in the surgery, to varying extents depending on the efficiency of the equipment. These products are designed to help dentists and their team measure, manage and minimise mercury exposure.
The mercury spillage kit has been designed with your COSHH obligations in mind and complies fully with these requirements. An annual mercury screening test by urine analysis is recommended for dentists by the British Dental Association, while the Resource CD includes valuable advice on assessing mercury exposure hazards in the surgery. Care Quality Comission Inspections are under way for dental practices and mercury spillage control measures are part of the CQC Outcomes.
