Forms for reporting occupational hygiene measurements

As an employer you are required to know what possible health risks your staff are exposed to in their daily work. If you deal with chemical hazards, you may need to carry out measurements to establish what exposure exists at your workplace. You can report the results of the occupational hygiene measurements on the form available on this page.

You should use two different forms when reporting the measurements:

  • Form A relates to the work station.
  • Form B relates to the results of the measurement.

There are also instructions on how to fill in the form. Only available in Swedish.

Send the files together with any attachments by email to arbetsmiljoverket@av.se. Attachments can be, for example, photographs, sketches or drawings. We can accept attachments in several formats, for example jpg, Word and pdf.

You can also submit the forms by normal letter to

However, it is easiest for us if you use email.

  • When we receive the measurement reports, we will record them.

  • We can use the reports when we inspect your place of work

Regulations on occupational exposure limit values:

It is obligatory to measure certain substances

If employees are exposed to certain substances, you must measure them under the regulations (AFS 2011:19) on chemical hazards in the working environment. This applies to the following substances:

  • lead and inorganic lead compounds
  • ethylene oxide
  • cadmium and inorganic cadmium compounds
  • styrene, vinyl toluene and other reactive monomers used in ester plastic production.

Compile the measurement results and send them to the Swedish Work Environment Authority, preferably by email. This makes it easier for us to process them.
