CHP Employee Exposure

Employee Exposure Assessment

The assigned BUMED IH will conduct air monitoring to determine if there is a reason to believe that exposure levels for a chemical may exceed regulatory limits. The decision to conduct air monitoring will be based on the:

  1. hazard potential of the chemical;
  2. amount of the chemical used;
  3. type an effectiveness of control measures used; and/or
  4. presence of overexposure indicators such as odors, observations, visual appearances or symptoms of exposure.
  5. Asbestos (friable)

Records/results of any air monitoring conducted in the laboratory must be maintained by the PI as part of the laboratory Chemical Hygiene Plan.

IH survey reports may be found here.
