||Harmful effects of odours in the workplace
||Les nuisances olfactives en entreprise [in French]|
||1995, Vol.56, No.6, p.467-470. 7 ref.
||Unpleasant odours are frequently present in workplaces. They are often ignored if not associated with health hazards. Air sampling, analytical methods, and - more generally - chemical investigations are often complex. This is why this kind of problem is frequently neglected. Olfactometry, which relies on the olfactive mucous membranes of a team of trained observers, permits the detection of odour origins, components and strength. It is a sensitive and effective method. Results obtained enable managers to look for the best solutions to cope with these undesirable effects.
