Cincinnati, Ohio — May 14, 2008 — ACGIH® has released the 2nd Edition of Modern Industrial Hygiene, Volume 1 — Recognition and Evaluation of Chemical Agents, which is one of over 25 titles featured in the ACGIH® Signature Publications Series.

The book begins with an overview of industrial hygiene, and leads into discussions of sampling strategy, exposure assessment, statistics, instrumentation, and sampling media.

Appendices provide hard-to-find data on vapor pressures and other physical-chemical constants. Its multidisciplinary scope, and emphasis on real-world problems and applications make this a reference of exceptional authority and practical value.

New in this edition:

  • Chapters have been updated and peer-reviewed.
  • Two new chapters have been added: 1) Application of Mathematical Modeling to Estimate Air Contaminant Exposure and 2) Application of Variance Component Models to Exposure Assessment.
