This monograph will be included in a future ACGIH® Signature Publication that will be entitled: Air Sampling Technologies: Principles and Applications. Fumes and dusts generated in metalworking occupations may contain toxic metals. Chronic airborne metal exposures can lead to adverse health effects involving the respiratory, cardiovascular, hepatic, and nervous systems. Acute exposures to airborne metals usually result in short-term adverse health effects including pneumonitis and metal fume fever. There is presently an increasing need for on-site monitoring and screening techniques for rapid measurement of airborne metal concentrations. This work examines the benefits and drawbacks of emerging portable technologies for measuring airborne metal particulates on-site, including X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (XRF), Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS), and Spark Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (SIBS).
