Strategies for Reactive Chemical Sampling and Analysis

Wednesday, May 25 | 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM


Exposure Assessment Strategies, Sampling and Laboratory Analysis

Arranger: M. Eide, OSHA retired, Boise, ID. Moderator: S. Iske, University of Central Missouri, Kansas City, MO. Monitors: A. Teague, Analytics Corporation, Ashland, VA; K. Rickabaugh, RJ Lee Group, Inc., Monroeville, PA.

The successful evaluation of exposures to reactive chemicals requires the IH to select the proper sampling media, keeping in mind the type of exposure whether vapor or particulate, and the interferences that may significantly affect the sample results. These presentations show the IH, how an AIHA accredited lab considers and tests these problems to provide the methodology for complex sampling strategies.
