Description:

Evolving technology and innovations in sampling are rapidly changing the way industrial hygiene is practiced.  Sensor technology, which can enable real time monitoring, sampling and job analysis, has the potential to change if and how laboratory testing is conducted.  All field practitioners (whether using new or traditional sampling methods) should better understand and appreciate the testing laboratory’s role in producing exposure data.  Field practitioners should be aware of the quality control, instrumentation, methods and accreditation requirements involved in analytical testing.  Laboratory specialists need to better understand the work conducted by field practitioners.  This presentation will focus on the importance of collaboration between field practitioners and testing laboratories in producing valid and defensible data. 

Cost:

$25 members, $35 non-members
