Video Exposure Monitoring as Part of a Strategy to Assess Exposure to Nanoparticles
Petra A. W. V. Beurskens-Comuth, Koen Verbist, Derk Brouwer, 2011

There is a growing awareness of the potential risks for human health of exposure to ultrafine particles or nanoparticles. In that context, workplace air measurements become important, and various strategies have been developed to monitor exposure. In addition, observations and time/activity registrations are part of the exposure assessment strategy in many studies. Video exposure monitoring (VEM) can be of added value in these strategies. VEM combines exposure data with simultaneous video pictures of the process.


The possibility to combine PIMEX and measurement instruments for nanoparticles was the object of this study. A variety of instruments are used to measure nanoparticles. One category is (near) real-time monitoring instruments, which determine numbers and particle size distribution or surface area concentration. Other instruments require sample collection in order to characterize the nanoparticles chemically and physically by microscopic analyses and/or elemental analyses
