This online training on air monitoring, the second in a two-part series, covers direct reading instruments for assessing airborne contaminants in a hazardous materials incident. Airborne contaminants such as radiation, combustible gases, toxins, oxygen deficient/ enriched atmospheres may be present in a hazardous materials incident, and emergency responders need to be aware of contaminants to handle the incident. The course includes a detailed look at direct reading instruments and teaches workers how they work, how to interpret readings and avoid common problems.

Topics specifically cover combustible gas indicators, oxygen indicators, detector tubes, survey instruments and radiation detectors. Use this course to teach emergency responders how to identify hazards and risks in order to safely handle a hazmat incident.
