Addressed primarily to employers. First published as EH42 but revised to increase accessibility to non-specialists and so enable wider use of it as an introduction to the design of inhalation exposure monitoring strategies. Accordingly, the advisory procedures offered here are designed to facilitate investigations into the nature, extent and control of hazardous exposure.

Covers substances identified as 'dangerous for supply' under the Chemicals (Hazard Information and Packaging for Supply) Regulations 2002, those controlled with a workplace exposure limit (WEL), biological agents, dusts in any substantial concentration or any substance known to create a health risk due to chemical or toxicological properties. Includes a breakdown of legislative requirements. Illustrated with graphical data analysis, guidance flowcharts and cross-sectional diagrams.
