Urinary mandelic acid in end-of shift
samples is a well-established monitoring technique for styrene
exposure. Urine samples should be collected at the end of shift,
but not on the first day of work.
Note any concurrent alcohol consumption,
which can impact excretion. Absorption of styrene can be increased
significantly with increased respiration due to physical activity.
Co-exposure to ethylbenzene should be noted as it also gives rise
to mandelic acid in urine.
A poster on
exposure data and trends is also available.
