Airborne contaminants can present a significant threat to worker health and safety and/or environment. Identification and quantification of these contaminants through air monitoring is an essential component of a health and safety program at a hazardous site, manufacturing emissions or manufacturing process protocols. Reliable measurements of airborne contaminants are useful for:
Selecting personal protective equipment.
Delineating areas where protection is needed.
Assessing the potential health effects of exposure
Determining the need for specific medical monitoring.
Manufacturing process protocols.
Priorities for air monitoring should be based on the information gathered during initial site characterization and or process protocol. This information serves as the basis for selecting the appropriate monitoring equipment and personal protective equipment (PPE) to use when conducting site monitoring. Depending on site conditions and project goals, four categories of site monitoring may be necessary: monitoring for IDLH and other dangerous conditions, general onsite monitoring, perimeter monitoring, and periodic monitoring.
