Cyclohexanone is a clear oily liquid with a distinctive acetone-like smell. It is commonly used in various industrial processes, including the production of adipic acid, resins, oxime, caprolactam, and nylon 6. Monitoring cyclohexanone levels in the workplace is essential to ensure the health and safety of employees exposed to this chemical.
How We Support You
Healthscreen offers comprehensive Cyclohexanone Monitoring services using urine sampling to assess employee exposure to cyclohexanone in the workplace. Our process involves collecting urine samples from employees and analysing them in specialized laboratories.
Urine sampling is a reliable method for evaluating internal exposure to cyclohexanone. By measuring the levels of cyclohexanone metabolites in urine, we accurately quantify the absorbed amounts. Our experienced team ensures a safe and confidential process, providing clear instructions to employees for sample collection.
The collected urine samples are sent to state-of-the-art laboratories with stringent quality control measures. Our skilled professionals analyse the samples, interpreting the results and providing detailed reports. These reports identify elevated levels of cyclohexanone metabolites and recommend control measures to mitigate exposure risks and ensure regulatory compliance.
We collaborate closely with you to understand the results and implement effective strategies, such as engineering controls, personal protective equipment, and employee training. Our aim is to create a safe work environment, protect employee health, and ensure compliance with cyclohexanone exposure regulations.
Cyclohexanone monitoring provides several benefits, including:
- Protecting the health and safety of employees exposed to cyclohexanone.
- Identifying areas with high cyclohexanone concentrations.
- Implementing control measures to reduce exposure and minimize health risks.
- Ensuring compliance with regulations and standards regarding cyclohexanone exposure.
- Early detection of potential hazards and timely intervention.
- Preventing long-term health effects associated with cyclohexanone exposure.
Ensuring Regulatory Compliance
Compliance with regulations is crucial in maintaining a safe working environment and protecting the health of employees. Cyclohexanone is a hazardous substance subject to various regulations and guidelines, including the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002. By utilising our Cyclohexanone Monitoring service, organisations can ensure compliance with these regulations, fulfil their legal obligations, and effectively manage the risks associated with cyclohexanone exposure.
Overexposure to cyclohexanone may cause symptoms such as irritation or burning of the eyes and skin, respiratory system irritation, coughing, wheezing, nausea, vomiting, headache, dizziness, drowsiness, and central nervous system disturbances. In severe cases, it can lead to narcosis or coma, although it generally has low acute toxicity.
Workers in industries involved in the production of adipic acid, resins, oxime, caprolactam, and nylon 6 are at risk of cyclohexanone exposure. This includes workers involved in manufacturing, processing, or handling these substances.
Cyclohexanone monitoring is crucial to assess the levels of this chemical in the workplace, identify potential health hazards, and implement control measures to protect the well-being of employees.
