Long term exposure to these compounds is now known to be harmful, with many organic compounds now regarded as cancer suspect agents. There is clearly a need for:
  1. 1.

    continuous monitoring of the workplace

  2. 2.

    a data storage system, to ensure that important information is readily retrievable e.g when alarm levels have been exceeded.
