Description

Exposure standards have been established in Australia for approximately 700 substances and mixtures. These are legal concentration limits that must not be exceeded.

Exposure standards do not identify a dividing line between a healthy or unhealthy working environment. Natural biological variation and the range of individual susceptibilities mean some people might experience adverse health effects below the exposure standard.

Exposure standards should not be considered as representing an acceptable level of exposure to workers, they are simply the maximum upper limit prescribed by legislation.
