  • Exposure to environmental tobacco smoke at work, at home, and during leisure time: personal exposure measurements by diffusive sampling of airborne 3-Ethenylpyridine

    Environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) is associated with an increased risk of several diseases. In 2002, the ETS exposure level was studied in a Finnish cross-sectional population sample with a sub-sample of currently working nonsmokers. In all, 123 nonsmokers (25-64 years) reporting at least 1 h of daily exposure to ETS participated in personal exposure measurements. Two 3 M organic vapor monitors, ...

  • Testing/Sampling and Analysis for Beryllium

    OSHA has issued the a new Permissible Exposure Level (PEL) for Beryllium. The new PEL will reduce the 8-hour time weighted average exposure from 2 micrograms per cubic meter of air (2 ug/m3) to 0.2 ug/m3—a ten-fold reduction! and an action level of 0.1 ug/m3. A 15 minute STEL is proposed at 2 ug/m3. Further, OSHA intends to develop a complete standard for Beryllium identified as 29 CFR ...
