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, 28th of May at 09:00 the hourly concentration of respirable particles in ambient air with diameter less than 10 micrometers (PM10), were between the maximum value of 170 μg/m3 with minimum value of 100 μg/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, Wednesday 27th of May, the average 24hour concentration of respirable particles was between 71 and 31 μg/m3 depending on the location.  

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.
