Occupational Exposure Limits

For a large number of hazardous substances, an Occupational Limit Value (OEL) has been derived; a maximum permissible concentration.

These limits usually are focused on air concentrations, yet biological limits (in saliva, urine, or blood) as a measure of internal dose also exist.

Caesar Consult assists companies and other organizations in the derivation and evaluation of exposure limits for dangerous substances and mixtures. These limits can be both air and biological values. We also take a critical look at work of third parties regularly.
