Description:

This monograph will be included in a future ACGIH® Signature Publication that will be entitled: Air Sampling Technologies: Principles and Applications. This monograph provides general guidance for the development of occupational hygiene interventions particularly in developing countries, emphasizing the importance of considering exposure assessment and air sampling instruments in the context of comprehensive, multidisciplinary, well managed and sustainable hazard prevention and control programs. Some guidance is provided as to the recognition of hazards, as well as to prevention and control, including the use of instruments at these stages. This monograph emphasizes the importance of anticipated planning for the selection of air sampling instruments, accounting for the real needs and conditions of use, and discusses factors that may present difficulties and vary with each situation, for example, infrastructure, human resources, operational requirements and cultural issues. Sources of information, both international and national, are presented.
