The assessment of air concentrations of hazardous substances may be performed using different assessment criteria. On the one hand, it is crucial if activities with or without hazardous substances are carried out. Otherwise, it has to be taken into account whether outdoor or indoor activities occur. Different scenarios are considered and exposure assessment using occupational exposure limits, immission limit values and indoor air guide values is described. Especially, situations which are not clearly distinguishable are considered.
