NTIS: PB 80-143969 :87 pages
The objective of this handbook is to provide inspectors with guidance for recognizing hazards from inhalation contaminants in aboveground work areas of underground and surface metal and nonmetal mining and processing facilities and evaluating these hazards by collecting samples or making field determinations and interpreting the analytical results. Portions of the handbook that should prove most useful to the inspectors include a survey check list, rules for determining if sampling is required, list of most frequently encountered contaminants, list of candidate contaminants and their sampling conditions, interpretation of results, and a procedure for health and safety inspections.
