Chemicals are a fact of life in the modern work world. Solvents, paints, lubricants and a host of other potentially harmful materials are present in almost every workplace. As a result, ensuring that chemicals are stored and used in a safe and responsible manner must be considered in any health & safety program.
One of the key components in ensuring that workers are not overexposed to workplace chemicals is a comprehensive occupational hygiene program. Air sampling, performed within the scope of a complete occupational hygiene program, can target and measure workplace contaminants to ensure compliance with legal limits.
This is an introductory course in air sampling, covering issues such as why is it necessary to conduct sampling, when and how are samples taken, who should conduct the sampling, etc.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
Outline the legal requirements for air sampling.
Outline various sampling techniques currently available.
Interpret sampling results from the laboratory.
Design a sampling strategy and write an air sampling report.
Make an informed decision with regard to the purchase, rental or lease of appropriate sampling equipment.
Identify specific requirements when dealing with contracted air sampling services.
