NIOSH 1980 Jun:70 pages
The use of a computerized gas analysis system for sampling the air, measuring the concentration of up to ten contaminant vapors, calculating and storing contaminant concentrations, and estimating average worker exposures is discussed. Flexibility, ease in operation, and simplicity of calibration are reviewed. The authors find that the instrument can monitor workers exposure to air contaminants at 1.5 minute intervals over an 8 hour shift and can survey and analyze air samples with concentration information within 30 seconds. The authors conclude that use of this instrument will improve workers' environment by providing better epidemiological data and reducing their exposure to toxic gases in the air.
