||The carbon monoxide (CO) concentrations at pouring stations in 10 foundries were measured by 4 different methods. In addition, the benzene concentrations in the breathing zone of workers were determined by personal sampling and capillary gas chromatography. It is concluded that CO can be used as an indicator for mandatory monitoring of exposure to carcinogenic substances such as benzene.
