Occupational exposure to beryllium can cause insidious disease that can be fatal, and new exposure limits for beryllium in air and on surfaces have been established in efforts to reduce exposure risks to potentially affected workers. Advances in sampling and analytical methods for beryllium are needed in order to meet the challenges relating to exposure assessment and risk reduction. The symposium will provide a forum for technical exchanges on current research and status regarding beryllium sampling and analysis issues. While the primary emphasis will be on current research in the area of beryllium sampling and analysis, it is intended that participants will be able to identify areas where pertinent standards can be developed concerning beryllium sample collection and analytical procedures.

The symposium is intended to address topics on beryllium related to:

    * Sampling in workplace atmospheres
    * Surface sampling
    * Sample preparation procedures in various matrices
    * Analytical methods for measuring
    * Reference materials
    * Proficiency testing
    * On-site monitoring
    * Opportunities for standardization of sampling and analysis methods

The targeted audience will include technical professionals such as industrial hygienists, chemists, physicists, safety engineers, and others having interest in beryllium exposure and analysis issues.
