Resumen In the special waste disposal industry the handling of multi-component mixtures is a normal operation. The composition of these is often unknown or constantly changing. In order to avoid risks to health, the German Ordinance concerning Hazardous Substances (see CIS 92-18) provides monitoring of adherence to maximum or recommended levels. In the report it is shown that monitoring of the workplace in the field of special category waste disposal in accordance with the Technical Guidance Rules for Chemical Substances (TRGS 402 and 403) is only achievable in conjunction with considerable expenditure and does not allow any assessment of future exposure levels. Suitable monitoring concepts for each area of special category waste disposal, based essentially on preventive measures for minimizing exposure to hazardous substances, are examined. Monitoring is shown to be neither sufficient nor practical, and protection of the workers and preventive measures are necessary. Suggested guidelines for practical procedures are presented. Summaries in English and French.
