Adequate measures are provided for the control of stress-producing hazards such as:
To ensure that controls are effective, employees= exposures must be monitored. The monitored results will determine if additional controls are needed. OSHA requires that exposures be monitored whenever there is reason to suspect a permissible exposure limit may be exceeded. These records are to be useful not only to the physician who examines the employee, but also when Workers= Compensation cases are filed.
The means of sampling will either be direct (i.e., noise, flammable gases, oxygen deficiencies) or indirect (i.e., dust, fumes, mists, which require a laboratory analysis). Sample results found to be within a questionable range may indicate the need for more accurate surveys by a certified industrial hygiene laboratory.
