Taming the data monster

Published:  03 July, 2009

BEDFORD: Health and Safety professionals are bombarded with data from all kinds of monitoring technology. Interpreting, disseminating and archiving this information are vital parts of the job. Now Casella CEL has simplified the task with its new data management software package that downloads and manages exposure data for a wide range of occupational hazards, including noise and dust.

Called Casella Insight, the software can download survey data gathered by monitoring equipment such as sound level meters, noise dosimeters and personal air sampling pumps, and allows it to be stored on a central database. Exposure data can then be managed by criteria such as person, place or process and viewed in tabular or graphical formats that uniquely combine multiple hazards simultaneously to allow an overall exposure calculation to be made.

Data can be imported from other devices and exported or sent to other users and colleagues, allowing for easy data sharing across organisations. An integral report wizard enables extremely comprehensive reports to be prepared, and the package also manages all the instrument calibration scheduling and storage of calibrations certificates.
