Title Estimating long-term exposure levels in process-type industries using production rates
Bibliographic information June 1990, Vol.51, No.6, p.310-312. Illus. 7 ref.
Abstract Exposure to toluene was investigated in 2 rotogravure plants in Finland. Good correlations were found between personal monitoring data and exposure estimates based on continuous area monitoring and data supplied by workers on the time spent in various areas of the plants. The study indicated that this kind of estimation procedure based on the association between production rate and exposure level does not always lead to fully accurate exposure levels, although it does help in the understanding of how production rates affect in-plant emissions of pollutants.
