General Information
Event Name: Air Monitoring for Emergency Response
Hosted By: Environmental Response Training Program (ERTP)
ERT - OSRTI
Event Description:

This course instructs participants in the practices and procedures for monitoring airborne hazardous materials. It is designed for personnel who evaluate airborne releases of hazardous materials. Evaluation of worker exposure to these releases is emphasized.

Topics covered include air monitoring strategies, techniques and equipment; instrument calibration; instrument limitations; exposure guidelines; air dispersion modeling; and health-and-safety considerations. The course will include operating procedures for specific air monitoring equipment, but students are encouraged to bring their own instruments to the course.  The focus is on direct-reading instruments, but air sample collection and field analytical instruments are discussed.

Instructional methods include a combination of lectures, group discussions, problem-solving sessions, and hands-on use of instruments.

After completing the course, participants will be able to:

  • Properly use the following types of air monitoring equipment:
    • Combustible gas indicators
    • Oxygen monitors
    • Detector tubes
    • Toxic gas monitors
    • Photoionization detectors
    • Flame ionization detectors
  • Identify the operational parameters, limitations, and data interpretation requirements for the instruments listed above, plus chemical warfare agent detectors, air sample collectors, and certain field analytical technologies.
  • Identify the factors to be considered in the development of air monitoring plans.
  • Describe the use of air monitoring data for the establishment of personnel and operations health and safety requirements.
