Abstract
Monitoring systems for determining the performance of engineering controls designed to reduce or eliminate worker exposure to hazardous chemical agents are evaluated. The availability and suitability of commercially available monitors are assessed for information supplied by manufacturers. Monitoring techniques were described for single and multiple chemical agents and for nonchemical agent engineering control and ventilation systems. Six survey reports are presented on operational monitoring systems for phosgene (75445), vinyl-chloride (75014), cotton dust, carbon- monoxide (630080), and lead (7439921). Deficiencies in monitoring technology are identified, and recommendations for research and development are made. A users' guide is given for the identification and selection of monitoring equipment options. The authors conclude that the study results are useful as a reference by industry and government personnel concerned with engineering control monitoring equipment.
