Section 3-2. Measurement of pollutants in the working atmosphere as a basis for risk assessment

If the employer is unable to document that the pollution of the working atmosphere is at a completely safe level, cf. the Regulations concerning Action and Limit Values, the working environment shall be monitored by taking regular measurements.
Measurements shall also be taken when changes have been made in the undertaking that may increase the employees’ exposure to pollutants in the working atmosphere.
The mapping and measurements shall be documented.
If the risk assessment shows that it is necessary to measure for any airborne asbestos fibres in the workplace to ensure compliance with the limit value, a fibre count shall be carried out using a light microscope with phase contrast according to the method recommended by the World Health Organisation in 1997 or according to another method that provides corresponding results.
