Workers in the Laboratory and Healthcare setting encounter many chemicals in the workplace. Chemical exposure monitoring is essential to guard against potential exposures related to repetitive job duties that involve chemicals used in a specific job or process. Biological monitoring of chemical exposure in the workplace is an important safeguard that ensures employee health and safety, while maintaining regulatory compliance.
Our comprehensive menu of exposure monitoring services enables us to evaluate these repeated exposure potentials and their impacts on your employees. Chemical exposure monitoring is mandated by various regulatory agencies. For example, OSHA and NIOSH and other bodies set Occupational Exposure Limits (OELs), Permissible Exposure Limits (PELs) and Short-Term Exposure Limits (STELs). Chemical exposure monitoring is a key element of compliance and ongoing safety.
Common areas and chemicals measured for OELs include:
- Waste Anesthetic Gases
- Nitrous Oxide
- Halogenated Agents
- Laboratory and Pathology Chemicals
- Acetic Acid
- Organic Vapors
- Endoscopy & Central Sterile Supply
- Ethylene Oxide
