RE: Frequency of Xylene monitors


CAP ANP.24150 states, "There is no requirement for periodic monitoring of
xylene".  If your initial exposure levels are below 100ppm 8hr time-weighted
exposure and 150ppm 15 min short term average,  you are done with testing.

Does anyone know if there is a CAP recommendation on how frequent you should
monitor for Xylene. Currently we do it every 3 months and would like to do
it less if we could.
