The project is aimed at investigating to what extent seafarers are exposed to toxic fumes on chemical and gas tankers. For that purpose accurate measuring will be carried out in the living spaces and during the normal working operations, as well at sea as in port. The measured values will be evaluated in comparison with the TLV-values. The results should allow us to optimise the correct application of means of protection.
