Visty, John
(Earth Tech Inc., Colo. Springs, CO)

Whether you are an in-house EHS professional or simply trying to insure your project is completed by a competent external industrial hygiene (IH) resource there are key points that can be applied to improve your likelihood for a successful IH project. Assessing some standard rationale for industrial hygiene will better organize your IH project, establish a straightforward project scope and improve the quality of the product or deliverable. A rationale will be presented on how to approach and successfully complete a sampling IH project. The rationale will include the key points to: Determine the core need for the IH exposure data Identify the analytes and related OELs Establish the IH methodology (OSHA / SEMI / NIOSH / ACGIH / IEEE) Select the proper IH survey / sampling equipment Industry IH project examples will be highlighted to underscore the use of the rationale. The audience will also be given an opportunity to review or ask questions regarding upcoming IH project issues.
