Abstract
The problem of comparing several alternate sampling devices to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standard, or the comparison of several sampling devices among themselves, is considered. A test based on the OSHA criterion that states that "90% of the readings of the sampling device should be within +/- 25% of the readings obtained by the standard" is developed. Type I error rates and powers of the test are studied using Monte Carlo simulation. The study indicates that the proposed test is quite satisfactory for applications. The method is illustrated using a simulated data set.
