Addendum to Components for Evaluation of Direct-Reading Monitors for Gases and Vapors: Hazard Detection in First Responder Environments

July 2012
DHHS (NIOSH) Publication Number 2012-163
cover of 2012-163

The Components for Evaluation of Direct-Reading Monitors for Gases and Vapors (hereafter referred to as the Components document) [NIOSH 2012], presents methods to be used in evaluating direct-reading monitors* for use in workplace compliance determinations.

This Addendum to the Components document expands the applicability of the Components by presenting methods to be used in evaluating direct-reading monitors for hazard detection in First Responder environments, including those related to incidents involving weapons of mass destruction (WMD). The Addendum contains a standardized test protocol and performance acceptance criteria for evaluating commercially available, direct-reading monitors in a style similar to the Components document.
