Re: [Histonet] vapor monitoring

From:"Joe Nocito"

Yes. I wasn't sure until I placed a badge over a bucket of formalin for 6 
hours. I few days later, I received a telephone call saying they were 
concerned because my level was over 2.0 ppm.
I'm still with that company and I'm still monitoring for formaldehyde and 
xylene every six months even though CAP says you don't have to once you 
establish that you are under OSHA standards. (Another reason why I have 
issues with CAP). Just my 4 cents (inflation you know).
    I would mention the company in open forum, but y'all know what happens 
to me when I do that.

Subject: [Histonet] vapor monitoring

I am inquiring how the majority of the "histology world" monitors
vapors. Currently the hospital has an outside agency twice a year. I
would like to monitor by the vapor badges. Are they as effective as the
outside agency?
