||Evaluating workers' exposure to volatile chemicals at the workplace is an often complex issue. The objective of the method described in this article is to help occupational hygiene specialists identify the substances that are present in workplace atmospheres and to select those that warrant priority evaluation. The proposed technique consists of air sampling through tubes filled with successive layers of adsorbants known for their capacity to capture specific groups of chemicals. Validation was carried out in 23 enterprises.
