Styrene Monitoring

What is Styrene?

Styrene is a colourless liquid that evaporates easily and has a sweet smell. It is extensively used to make plastics and rubber and is also used in insulation, fiberglass, plastic pipes, automobile parts, shoes, drinking cups and other food containers, and carpet backing. The level of exposure depends upon the dose, duration, and work being done and as a result is potentially harmful to employees.

Workers At Risk:

  • Workers in the reinforced plastics industry
  • Employees involved in styrene polymerization
  • Factory workers in rubber manufacturing
  • Workers in industries that use styrene polyester resin
  • Employees of photocopy centers

Symptoms of Exposure

Inhaling high levels can cause:

  • Colour vision
  • Tiredness
  • Feeling drunk
  • Slowed reaction time
  • Lack of Concentration
  • Balance problems

Healthscreen can help monitor exposure with urine sampling, consequently helping your company to ensure your control measures are working correctly.
