Sampling and analytical methods that can be used to monitor worker exposure to air contaminants are outlined. The methods have been validated under the joint NIOSH/OSHA Standards Completion Program and are suitable for measuring airborne concentrations of these substances and for determining compliance with the standards. For 15 compounds, information is presented on the principle of the method, range and sensitivity, interference, precision and accuracy, advantages and disadvantages of the method, apparatus, reagents, procedures, calibration and standards, and calculations. The 15 compounds are: acetylene-tetrabromide (79276); chlorinated diphenyl- oxide; chlorodiphenyl; epichlorohydrin (106898); 1,1,1,2-tetrachloro- 2,2-difluroethane (76119); 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane (79345); 1,1,2- trichloro-1,2,2-trifluoroethane (76131); trichloronaphthalene (1321659); trifluoromonobromomethane (75638); allyl-chloride (107051); chlorobenzene (108907); 1,1-dichloroethane (75343); 1,1,2,2-tetrachloro-1,2-difluoroethane (76120); tetrachloronaphthalene (1335882); and 1,2,3-trichloropropane (96184).
