Do PFOS and PFOA pose a risk to my health and wellbeing?
As members should be aware, last year Airservices engaged the University of Queensland to conduct a study to evaluate workplace exposure to perfluoroalkyl acids (PFOS, PFHxS & PFOA). If you chose to participate in the study you most likely would have received your results over the last week or so. A brief summary of the results are listed below:

(The University of Queensland, 2014)
