Exposure describes the process of allowing radiation to interact with some areas of a photoresist layer while blocking the radiation from reaching other areas of photoresist.


In the industrial context, exposure refers to the state or condition of being subjected to potentially harmful substances, conditions, or hazards in the workplace. It encompasses situations where workers or the environment come into contact with physical, chemical, biological, or ergonomic risks that could adversely affect health, safety, or well-being. Industrial exposure may occur during various activities such as manufacturing processes, material handling, equipment operation, maintenance, or hazardous waste management. Factors influencing exposure include the type and concentration of hazardous substances, duration and frequency of exposure, as well as the effectiveness of control measures and personal protective equipment.

Application Areas

  • Occupational exposure monitoring and assessment in industrial settings
  • Evaluation of environmental exposure levels in industrial facilities and surrounding communities
  • Risk management and mitigation strategies for minimizing exposure to hazardous substances or conditions
  • Development and implementation of workplace safety programs and regulations
  • Health surveillance and medical monitoring of workers exposed to occupational hazards

Treatment and Risks

  • Implementation of engineering controls, administrative measures, and personal protective equipment to reduce exposure levels and mitigate risks
  • Regular monitoring and assessment of exposure levels through air sampling, biological monitoring, or environmental testing
  • Training and education programs for workers on hazard recognition, safe work practices, and emergency response procedures
  • Compliance with occupational health and safety regulations and standards to ensure adequate protection for workers and the environment
  • Risks include acute or chronic health effects, occupational diseases, injuries, environmental contamination, and regulatory non-compliance.


  • Monitoring airborne dust levels in a manufacturing facility to assess workers' exposure to respirable crystalline silica
  • Conducting noise measurements to evaluate workers' exposure to high noise levels in industrial settings
  • Sampling and analysis of chemical contaminants in wastewater discharges to assess environmental exposure risks
  • Implementing ergonomic assessments to identify and control ergonomic hazards leading to musculoskeletal disorders

Similar Concepts and Synonyms

  • Hazard exposure
  • Workplace exposure
  • Environmental exposure
  • Occupational exposure
  • Risk exposure


In the industrial context, exposure refers to the potential risk of encountering harmful substances or hazards in the workplace environment. It encompasses various factors such as chemical, physical, biological, and ergonomic risks that could impact health and safety. Treatment involves implementing control measures, monitoring exposure levels, providing training, and ensuring compliance with regulations to mitigate risks. Examples include monitoring airborne contaminants, noise levels, and ergonomic hazards. Synonyms for exposure include hazard exposure, workplace exposure, and occupational exposure. Overall, managing exposure is crucial for protecting workers' health and safety in industrial environments.
