SKC Guide to HSE
(Health and Safety Executive)
UK Air Sampling Standards

By clicking on a letter below, the Air Sampling Guide Database will display a list of chemical hazards beginning with that letter. Click on the name of the chemical hazard and the database will provide you with the HSE Standard number, agency standard (TWA or STEL), sampling time, sampling rate, sample volume, analytical method and a listing of SKC collecting equipment suitable for the method.

HSE methods differ from those developed by OSHA and NIOSH and the EPA, so a separate database for OSHA/NIOSH methods and a separate database for EPA methods has been included.
