Passive Personnel Monitoring Methods - airbourne substances - arsenic

A member asks -

I am trying to quantify and assess an operator's exposure to airborne
arsenic that may or may not be present during a process.
At present we use a small sampling pump to pull a known volume of air
across a pre-weighed filter media for 8 hours, re-weigh the filter and then
analyse the contents for arsenic.

Is anyone aware of any published or otherwise generally accepted methods for passive personnel monitoring?
