        • equipment, process, control, personnel or task resulting in levels at or above the action level
    • Document
exposure assessment2
EXPOSURE ASSESSMENT
  • POSITIVE INITIAL DETERMINATION
    • Exposure at or above the AL and below the PEL
      • Conduct monitoring representative of each exposed employee
    • May use historical data
