Adam V. Wisnewski and Paul D. Siegel


4. A standard method exists for production of diisocyanate haptenated albumin that produces a chemically consistent antigen that is equally recognized by IgG and IgE from all sensitized workers, as well as laboratory produced monoclonal antibodies. True or False?

Improving the Accuracy of Smart Devices to Measure Noise Exposure

Benjamin Roberts, Chucri Kardous and Richard Neitzel

5. This study found that internal microphones have been found to make accurate noise measurements. True or False?

6. All noise measurements applications have similar noise measurement accuracy. True or False?

Effect of Station-specific Alerting and Ramp-up Tones on Firefighters’ Alarm Time Heart Rates

James J. MacNeal, David C. Cone and Christopher L. Wistrom

Sara A. Brenner, Nicole M. Neu-Baker, Adrienne C. Eastlake, Catherine C. Beaucham and Charles L. Geraci

9. The potential for particulate to become airborne in this sampling environment was reduced because:

10. The complete exposure assessment of potential sources of nanoparticle emissions made use of NEAT 2.0. This method includes a combination of filter-based sampling for mass concentration and elemental composition analysis and direct-reading instruments for counts of particle number concentration or mass concentration and particle size. True or False?

Peter A. Jaques, Pengfei Gao, Selcen Kilinc-Balci, Lee Portnoff, Robyn Weible, Matthew Horvatin, Amanda Strauch and Ronald Shaffer

11. This article highlights that, in general, fluid strike-through increases with higher applied elbow pressure, was higher for lower fluid surface tension, and was higher for the discontinuous regions of the protective garments. True or False?

12. Which is not considered an attribute of the Elbow Lean Test?

A Simple Method for Assessing Occupational Exposure Via the One-way Random Effects Model

K. Krishnamoorthy, Thomas Mathew and Jie Peng

13. The methods described in this article are appropriate for assessing occupational exposure levels of similarly exposed groups of workers in a workplace. True or False?

14. Monte Carlo simulation is required to find an upper confidence limit for an upper percentile of the exposure distribution. True or False?
