In view of the known variability of industrial hygiene data sets, a small dataset is unlikely to generate data which reflects the full range of potential exposures. Rule-based data interpretation approaches including the EN 689 standard can be applied for small or highly truncated data sets where most of the values are below the limit of quantitation. Rule-based statistics are easy to use, are “black and white”, and often allow better decision making than calculating traditional statistics or Bayesian statistics for these small or highly truncated data sets. However, as discussed in this presentation, the choice of which rule-based data interpretation approach to apply can depend on many factors, including not only the number of data points collected but also a risk assessment for your specific operation(s).Who Should Attend
Environmental, health, and safety (EHS) professionals, industrial hygienists, engineers, or others with responsibility to interpret employee exposure and air monitoring data.About the Instructor
