Title Glycol ethers. Job-exposure matrix
Original title Ethers de glycol - Matrice emplois-expositions [in French]
Bibliographic information 1st Quarter 1996, No.162, Note No.2009-162-96, p.5-17. 18 ref.
Abstract A campaign to assess exposure to glycol ethers was conducted by INRS from 1988 to 1993 in 55 firms, covering 63 workshops or work situations. Exposure was measured by atmospheric and biological sampling. A total of 944 employees took part in the survey; 1,746 atmospheric samples and 2,315 urine samples were taken. Based on the results, a job-exposure matrix for glycol ethers was drawn up. For each occupational activity the likelihood, intensity and frequency of exposure were codified.
