||Biological monitoring constitutes an important complement to the monitoring of workplace air for evaluating the exposure of workers to harmful substances. The determination of a substance or its metabolites in biological matter allows the estimation of internal loads, taking into account all modes of absorption into the body. Contents of this article on tolerable biological limit values (TBLVs): usefulness of biological monitoring; definition of TBLV; load among occupationally-unexposed populations; list of TBL values; comment on substances for which TBLVs were revised in 2003 (lead and its inorganic compounds, inorganic mercury, aluminium, manganese and its inorganic compounds, styrene, other organic solvents); biological monitoring in the context of medical supervision.
