Notification of Monitoring Results and Corrective Action, When Necessary

Your employer will inform you of the results, if you are someone who is affected by the PEL and STEL monitoring.
  • Your employer must inform you within 15 working days after receipt of the results.
  • Your employer can inform you either individually in writing or by posting the results in an appropriate location that is accessible to employees.
When monitoring results exceed either the action limit or STEL, your employer must:
  • Develop a written plan to reduce exposure to levels below the PEL and STEL.
  • Provide you with a written description of corrective actions that will be taken.
The periodic monitoring can be discontinued if results from two consecutive sampling periods taken at least seven days apart show that employee exposure is below the action level and the STEL.
Formaldehyde monitoring must be repeated any time there is a change in production, equipment, process personnel, or control measures, which may result in new or additional employee exposure to formaldehyde.
