Exposure assessments often require sample collection and analysis. Effective exposure assessments require knowledge and experience to ensure that sampling strategies are properly planned and implemented. Proper data interpretation, based on science and reflecting the actual or potential exposures found in the worksite, is essential when: determining control measures, employee disclosure, and establishing medical surveillance programs.
