Air Sampling Fundamentals for the Workplace

Course Description

This one-day course will provide an opportunity for both general industry and construction businesses to learn about and explore the available strategies for workplace air monitoring. Succinct, facilitated and interactive training on this topic will allow participants to gain the knowledge they need to conduct an air monitoring survey of their workplace for a variety of reasons, including compliance with OSHA, state or insurance requirements; response to a complaint; evaluation of controls; and selection of appropriate personal protective equipment or respiratory protection.

The topics in this course go hand in hand with OTI 2225P: Respiratory Protection. Both courses are generally scheduled during the same week so registrants may conveniently attend both.
