Abstract
A procedure is developed for the use of employers to ensure the employees' safety in an industrial environment where atmospheric contaminants are present. A sequential procedure is presented according to which it is recommended that the employer sample the employees potentially exposed to atmospheric contaminants. Statistical decision procedures for classifying the employees according to their exposure are presented. The possible action to be taken by the employer, namely instituting engineering controls if warranted, is discussed and the corresponding decision procedure is derived.
