Abstract
Nine peer-reviewed papers provide the latest research on beryllium sample collection, preparation, and measurement. STP 1473 also identifies new areas of standards development concerning beryllium sampling and analytical procedures. Topics cover: Beryllium Disease-Exposure Monitoring and Standardization Issues: an overview of beryllium disease and efforts to reduce worker exposures through improved monitoring methods and the development of standard methodologies. Papers discuss the industrial uses of beryllium, the history of beryllium disease, occupational exposure monitoring, and standardization of sampling and analytical methods. Beryllium Exposure Measurement and Reference Materials-National and International Perspectives: global efforts and progress in beryllium occupational monitoring, as well as the development and characterization of beryllium reference materials. Applications of sampling and analytical methods to industrial hygiene chemistry and practice are highlighted, and needs for reference materials containing beryllium oxide are identified. On-Site Monitoring for Beryllium-Sampling and Analytical Aspects: new portable analytical methods for determining trace beryllium in samples from air and surfaces, time qualitative and semi-quantitative methods, and near real-time quantitative techniques for ultra-trace Be analysis.
