RE: Frequency of Xylene monitors
Once a year is adequate for monitoring xylene and unless you change a
procedure or have a high reading, then you must monitor following the
procedure change, i.e., staining or processing in a new room with open
xylene, or continue monitoring if you have a high reading until you find the
reason for the high reading, FYI, if you have a high reading of xylene fumes
then you would have a major problem do to the fact the (US) OSHA acceptable
guidelines for xylene fumes are extremely high, ( I think currently they are
in the range of 50-100 ppm).

We do it once a year, have never had a high reading.

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.
