Occupational Exposure Limits to Prevent Chemical Risks
The objective of this brochure is to give an overview of the different aspects of and approaches to deriving OELs for protecting workers in the context of chemical risk management.
This booklet has been written by a group of experts belonging to different organisations and companies from Austria, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland. The various chapters of the brochure are conceived as independent articles dealing with separate specialised topics. The ISSA Chemistry Section would hereby like to make a contribution to the understanding of how limit values are derived and of how important it is to apply them. The brochure is supplemented by a web application, which is available at www.limitvalues.net.
