What are your options for measuring benzene exposure within the workplace
Knowing the obligations of legislation and OELs, the question remains, how do I know if my workplace benzene exposures are below the limits for my country?
Unlike other health and safety issues that are managed by risk assessment, this can only be determined by monitoring.
There are several monitoring solutions on the market but photoionisation detection (PID) has proven to be the ideal tool. PID based solutions are used in the following ways:-
- fixed instrumentation
- portable instrumentation
- personal instrumentation
