Original Abstract

This study presents the results of pilot measurement, where the exposure of fine and ultrafine particulate matter was monitored. The measurement was performed in different workplaces, where these particles are produced unintentionally. These were mainly engineering operations of welding shops, paint shops, but laboratory workplace was also observed. The measurement consisted of collecting information and measuring the concentration of particles in the workplace. Data collection was primarily focused on inhalation exposure. Particle samples were also obtained during the measurement to determine the morphology and chemical composition of the particles. An approach was also proposed to observe the selected psychological aspects (e.g. employee well-being) and occupational health and safety in an environment with the presence of fine and ultrafine particles.
