Biological Monitoring for Chemical Exposures at Work
Biological monitoring is a useful tool for occupational hygiene
and health professionals. It is based on the analysis of hazardous
substances or their metabolites in urine, blood or breath, and is
used to assess chemical exposures by inhalation, ingestion and
absorption through the skin.
Biological monitoring is particularly valuable where substances
may be absorbed through the skin or where control of exposure
relies on personal protective equipment. It can also be used to
investigate the behavioural aspects of exposure controls.
This workshop is an overview of biological monitoring and how it
can enhance the service that occupational hygiene and
health professionals offer.
The course will cover:
- An introduction to biological monitoring.
- Practicalities - how to establish a biological monitoring
- View from a practitioner - using biological monitoring to
assess chemical exposures.
- Practical session - small group working using a case
- Interpreting results - understanding and acting on the results
Who should attend?
The workshop is designed for occupational hygiene and health
providers who are interested in what biological monitoring can do
for them and their clients and for company employees specifically
responsible for worker health protection.
