Inspiring science; the inhalable fraction

Through cutting-edge research, IOM established the inhalable fraction; a ratio that determines how much dust can be inhaled into the respiratory tract.

The inhalable fraction is used to set safe limit values for workplace exposures to dusts and chemicals worldwide.

Implementation of the national standardised regulations has improved the lives of millions of workers over the years.
