RE: Histo Air Monitoring

From:"Horn, Hazel V" <>

Sorry I can't help.......Our safety department does all of our monitoring
and they do monitor for alcohol, xylene, formaldehyde and even our xylene
substitute.     I can tell you for us it is easy to use.   We just wear a
badge for 15 minutes and then one for 8 hours.    Our safety department
sends these badges out somewhere to be evaluated with the reports sent back
to safety.    Our safety department then sends reports to our lab director.

I have no idea what it costs.    We monitor this once a year (unless one of
them comes back high)  and if there is a change in procedure we monitor
