The breakdown of organic material in landfills can produce unsafe levels of gases, predominantly methane and carbon dioxide. At certain levels, these landfill gases can represent a flammable risk or impact air quality by displacing oxygen.
A landfill gas risk assessment may be required to investigate the potential health risks posed to workers operating on a site or for individuals residing within a certain distance from an operational or former landfill site.
