Time Weighted Averages Safety standards regarding chemical exposure are often stat ed in terms of average expo sure levels or Time Weighted A verages (TWA). The Short - Term Exposure Limit (STEL) is the average exposure level over 15 M inutes. The Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL, sometimes called a Long Term Exposure Limit) is the average exposure level over 8 H ours. The TWA calculation is based on a “moving time - window.” So, the displayed 15 - Minute TWA represents the average gas c oncentration during the last 15 M i nutes, a window which began 15 M inutes ago and ends at the present moment (o r began 8 Hours ago and ends at the present moment in the case of the 8 Hour TWA) .
