SANTILLAN, Stephanie Ehmig. Assessment and control of chemical risk from organic vapors for attendants in a gas station. Enfoque UTE [online]. 2015, vol.6, n.4, pp.113-123. ISSN 1390-6542.

This research comprises monitoring, assessment and recommendations for chemical risk originating from organic vapors (benzene, toluene and xylene) of fuel (super and extra gasoline) to which attendants at a gas station are exposed. Given the concentration measured of organic vapors (benzene, toluene and xylene) the chemical risk to which attendants are exposed in the supply area is acceptable. Control measures are recommended to ensure healthy working conditions for gas station attendants and also to avoid occurrence of occupational diseases in the medium or long term.
