The MAK-Collection for Occupational Health and Safety

About the MAK-Collection

All volumes provide comprehensive and authoritative information for occupational health and safety professionals and researchers. They cover both the toxicological substantiation of threshold values for chemicals at the workplace (MAK and BAT values), plus the suitable monitoring methods. Thus, they are an indispensable tool for maintaining occupational health and safety. MAK values set the standards for legal regulations in many countries around the world, for example, forming the basis for at least 30 % of the threshold limits valid in the European Union and are also frequently referred to in Asia. MAK Value documentations are currently being translated into Chinese.
