Finding the Optimal Balance Between Protection and Feasibility

BeST’s “Benchmark Occupational Exposure Limits (OEL) at a glance” features the OELs for Beryllium and Beryllium compounds currently applied in EU and Non-EU countries. The OELs are expressed in 8-hour Time-Weighted Average (TWA) – inhalable fraction – and range from high OELs to extremely low OELs (SCOEL recommendation). For each value, brief comments are provided on the challenges concerning its implementation.
