Abstract
Points to consider in conducting a walk-through survey are touched upon. Included are dealing with personnel and other hygienists, NIOSH versus OSHA jurisdiction, knowledge of operations and processes, compatibility of chemicals in the same environment, exposure limits in work environments containing mixtures of toxic substances, various aspects of ventilation, air sampling and interferences present, and the use and misuse of personal protective equipment. It is stated that the industrial hygienist starts his walk-through survey with the need to evaluate a particular site against the criteria based on his knowledge of good practice and the requirements of the law. The intent is to locate potential hazards and prevent their occurrence so that the worker is protected. (Contract No. 210-76-0118)
