Mercury originating deep underground is a natural contaminant of oil and natural gas. In oil gas and petrochemical plants it can condense out and accumulate in liquid form causing embrittlement of metal components (with the risk of explosion) and presenting a toxic hazard to workers in these plants.
Workers on oil rigs and in refineries and other processing plants should regularly be tested for mercury exposure and should take steps to ensure they are protected from occupational exposure.

Why should I worry about mercury in my workplace office and home ?
The most common source now is energy-saving light bulbs, also called compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs). These work in the same way as full size office-type fluorescent lamps; a small amount of mercury..
At last, an easy way to check if surfaces are contaminated with mercury. This highly specific mercury indicator powder reacts with mercury vapour to give a dark colour. Sprinkle it onto any surface and leave 24 hours, then compare the result with fresh powder. Full instructions and a guide to interpreting the results are supplied with the pack.

Harmful mercury vapour is released from mercury spillages, broken fluorescent lamps or from industrial work areas where mercury-rich dust can accumulate, such as in flat screen electronic recycling facilities. Anywhere that mercury vapour release is a risk to health, this product will prevent mercury vapour from escaping into the atmosphere. It does this by coating the source of the va..
What is it ?
Passive dosimetry is a personal monitoring technique which uses air flow to capture mercury vapour in the filter capsule over a period of time. The badge is then returned and the capsule is analysed for mercury. When adjusted for the exposure time, the average air concentration of mercury can then be calculated, showing if the worker has been at risk of mercur..
Workers in the recycling industry who handle and dismantle electronic equipment are frequently exposed to lead fumes. Occupational lead exposure is hazardous to the health of these workers and people at risk should be monitored. Urine assay of lead is the best method, as with mercury. This sample kit contains a urine sampling bottle, full instructions and the analysis is pre-paid. ..

Who needs this service ?
The Dental Team
The BDA advises that all members of the dental team who are exposed to mercury in the form of placing or removing dental amalgam fillings should be monitored annually for mercury exposure. Urine analysis is far more sensitive than hair or blood analysis because it measures total body burden from all routes (inhalation, ..
