monitoring, instrumentation, sample shipping procedures, and other duties assigned by the
SSHO. The responsibilities for each staff position and the minimum requirements for the SSHO
and other air monitoring staff should be developed and presented in tables similar to those shown

should be specified. The following should be included as appropriate, depending on site-specific
Classes of chemicals,
Specific contaminants for individual identification and analysis,
Total and respirable dust,
Specific radioisotopes and corresponding types of radiation, and
A table should be provided which summarizes the contaminants to be monitored, key chemical,
radiological, physical, and toxicological properties for each contaminant, and the
frequency/schedule for monitoring each contaminant. An example is provided in Table 8-2. A
table of pre-established action levels for each contaminant, corresponding actions to be taken
when action levels are exceeded, and the basis for choosing an action level should be developed.
