Hans Thore Smedbold is a senior advisor and researcher at Proactima and writes a series of articles on occupational hygiene measurements. The first article has already been published in the “Yrkeshygienikeren” and is about basic statistics.
In the series there will also be published articles on reviews of eg. compliance with governmental limit values, measurements below the detection limit, long-term exposure to carcinogenic, mutagenic and reproductive toxicants and new NS-EN 689.
Hans Thore has also prepared a spreadsheet “YH-HELP” to help assess measurements. The spreadsheet is free and can eventually be downloaded via the website for Norwegian Institute of Occupational Health – www.nyf.no
The publication “Yrkeshygienikeren” has three editions per year. The next edition comes in October.
