We have performed beryllium exposure monitoring for a university research group as a third-party industrial hygiene consultant. Although no detectable beryllium exposure was found, the most important improvement over the anticipated testing was the use of an airtight enclosure around the testing equipment. The use of a plastic barrier minimized the need for cleaning all surfaces in the lab room after testing.

Dear All, 

We have a researcher who is planning to work with new beryllium materials using in-lab sintering technology and then characterizing those materials. My question is regarding monitoring, 

* What is the monitoring method used at your institute ? 
* Is monitoring performed  by EHS, or third party or by lab personnel themselves ? 
* If monitoring is performed by lab personnel then do they receive specific training on monitoring methods ?
