Xylene Monitoring

At Healthscreen, we offer comprehensive xylene monitoring services to assess and manage employee exposure to xylene, a clear and colourless liquid with potential health hazards. Xylene is commonly used in various industries and can pose risks to workers if not properly monitored. Our monitoring solutions provide valuable insights to ensure the safety and well-being of your employees.

How We Support You

Our Xylene Monitoring service is designed to assess and evaluate xylene exposure in your workforce through the use of urine sampling. By collecting and analysing urine samples in our specialized laboratories, we can accurately measure and quantify the levels of xylene present in the body. This biological monitoring approach provides valuable insights into the extent of xylene exposure, allowing you to assess the effectiveness of control measures and implement appropriate risk management strategies. Our experienced team guides you through the entire monitoring process, providing sampling kits and clear instructions. With advanced techniques and reliable results, we generate comprehensive reports that outline actionable recommendations for mitigating xylene exposure risks. By partnering with us, you can proactively protect the health and well-being of your employees while maintaining regulatory compliance.

Ensuring Compliance with Regulations

Under the relevant regulations, such as the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002, employers have a legal obligation to protect their employees from the potential hazards of xylene exposure. These regulations require employers to assess the risks associated with xylene, implement control measures, and monitor employee exposure levels to ensure compliance with the prescribed exposure limits.

Through our Xylene Monitoring service, we help you meet these regulatory requirements by providing a comprehensive and accurate assessment of xylene exposure in the workplace.


Symptoms of xylene exposure can include irritation of the nose and throat, headaches, nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, skin irritation, and mild eye irritation. Severe exposure can lead to unconsciousness or lung damage if swallowed.

Healthscreen utilizes various monitoring methods such as air sampling and biological monitoring to assess xylene levels in the workplace. Our specialized laboratories analyse the collected samples to provide accurate and actionable data.

Industries that commonly use xylene include printing, painting, varnishing, rubber manufacturing, and chemical production. Workers in these industries are at risk of xylene exposure.
