Mercury Survey & Testing Services

Sysco provides a range of mercury-related services such as preventative and reactive mercury contamination surveys for clients in sectors such as the construction industry, public health and educational systems.

Mercury is a highly toxic liquid metal which has been commonly used throughout industry. Mercury is often found in the wastewater plumbing system in research facilities, hospitals, manufacturing facilities and schools due to being freely discharged into the waste systems. As mercury is heavier than water, it rapidly settles at the bottom of the traps, joints, elbows and other low areas of pipework. Therefore, mercury is mostly accumulated in a solid mass in the formed sediment and biofilms and is released very slowly into the water stream.

Sudden changes in flow rates, or disturbances of the wastewater system can lead to sudden release of mercury, and exposure to high levels of mercury can harm the brain, heart, kidneys, lungs, and immune system, as well as unborn babies.

The Importance of Mercury Vapour Occupational Monitoring

At Sysco Environmental Ltd, we offer specialised mercury vapour monitoring services to ensure compliance with Workplace Exposure Limits (WEL). This is essential for verifying that engineered controls and personal protective equipment are functioning effectively.

Our expert air monitoring provides a scientifically robust foundation for identifying the most suitable solutions to mercury contamination. All occupational exposure assessments are conducted using validated methods established by leading health and safety organisations, including the HSE, NIOSH, and OSHA.

Mercury exposure poses significant health risks, making its management in the workplace extremely important. Mercury vapour exposure is receiving much attention from health and safety professionals, international health experts, and the authorities due to its severe health implications.

Mercury exposure can affect the health of a wide variety of workers, including:

Mercury vapour is particularly hazardous because it can be easily inhaled, leading to absorption in the lungs and distribution throughout the body. Chronic exposure to mercury vapour can cause severe health issues, including neurological and behavioural disorders, tremors, cognitive deficits, and kidney damage. In addition, high concentrations of mercury vapour exposure can result in respiratory irritation and damage to lung tissues.

Our comprehensive mercury monitoring services ensure that workplaces are safe and compliant with health and safety regulations, protecting workers from the detrimental effects of mercury exposure.
