Announcement on the Dust in the Atmosphere of Cyprus

 

The Department of Labour Inspection of the Ministry of Labour, Welfare and Social Insurance, announces that today, 07th of September at 17:00 the hourly concentration of respirable particles in ambient air with diameter less than 10 micrometers (PM10), for Nicosia municipality was 547μg/m3. Consequently it is expected that the average 24hour concentration will exceed the corresponding limit value of 50 μg/m3 (micrograms per cubic meter), as defined by the relative legislation. Yesterday, Sunday 6th of September, the average 24hour concentration of respirable particles in Nicosia was 31 μg/m3.

The citizens of the others municipalities could inform about hourly average values from the website of the Department of Labour Inspection (www.airquality.dli.mlsi.gov.cy)

Because of the small size of the respirable particles and their negative effect on human health, the public and especially the vulnerable groups of population (children, old people and patients) are advised to avoid the outdoors and exercising in open spaces during this event.

 

Also it is recommended that the workers in open spaces use appropriate means of personal protection.
