Workplace Exposure Assessment Program

The Workplace Exposure Assessment Program is established in order to evaluate potential personal exposures to hazardous substances. The program consists of a variety of activities implemented to evaluate a person’s exposure including observation of job routine, evaluation of work place control measures and environmental sampling. Several types of sampling are performed by Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) depending on the nature of the chemical hazard, the frequency of chemical use and the way the chemical is handled.

Chemical exposure monitoring is often initiated by EH&S and can also be provided upon request. Some of the typical chemicals, which are monitored, include:

  • Asbestos

  • Lead particulate (Lead Based Paint)

  • Formaldehyde

  • Hazardous laboratory chemicals

  • Solvent based materials and cleaning products

  • Chemical carcinogens or extremely toxic substances
