OSHA Florida Monitoring Data


  • Please Note:
  • Sample Type: A = Area; P = Personal; S=Screen
  • PEL = OSHA Permissible Exposure Limit (usually a 480 minute exposure, value listed for reference)
  • AL = OSHA Action Level (used with noise exposures only)
  • Non-Detected (ND) = Exposures less than Reporting Limit
  • NA = Not Available. Information not recorded when sample was taken.
  •  
  • a = Results reported are time weighted averages for the actual sampling period.
  • b = For comparative purposes only, the TWA > PEL/AL box is checked Y if the actual TWA is greater than the OSHA 8-hour PEL.  Does not necessarily represent a legal PEL violation. For additional information, see Information on Sampling Results.
  •  
  • Total Fiber sample results may also include asbestos fibers.
  • These tables are best viewed on tablets, notebooks, or desktop computer screens.
