This manual describes the major elements of a reliable industrial hygiene laboratory quality system. The manual was compiled to aid new laboratories in establishing quality programs and to help established laboratories enhance existing programs. It is not intended as a "turn-key" document, but rather as a reference manual, the parts of which can be adapted to the individual laboratory. The updated manual addresses requirements of ISO/IEC 17025:2017 as well as new AIHA® LAP Policies released in 2018. By incorporating the basic principles outlined in this manual, laboratories can develop comprehensive programs that will assure quality results.
For professionals conducting mold assessments in residential and commercial buildings, this latest guide discusses exposure and hazard assessments, hazard assessment, and re-occupancy and post-remediation verification methodologies and techniques.

A good IAQ investigator is calm, observant, thorough, and discerning. They should be skilled in knowing what questions to ask, have knowledge of building systems, and possess a willingness to engage the public promptly and communicate results clearly to all involved parties. This guide discusses the initial investigation, a HVAC overview and inspection, considerations for special indoor environments, risk communication, and report preparation. Eleven appendices are also included, providing the reader with guidelines, checklists, and forms to assist in their investigations.
The rapid detection of chemicals and unsafe workplace atmospheres has been pursued for well over one hundred years. Well-known and accepted detection instruments, developed and refined over the years, are often applied to acute hazards, for which time-weighted average sampling may not be protective. Beyond the time-tested detection tools, new compact and capable field analysis systems exist, and improvements to reduce the size, complexity, and cost of such systems are continually occurring. The fusion of old and new capabilities is changing the state-of-the-art for exposure assessment, and a firm understanding of the available field detection and exposure measurement tools is critical to the ability of industrial hygienists and allied professionals to properly fill their roles in protecting human health.
This publication encompasses the evaluation of chemical and physical exposures, the interaction of the worker with the machinery, and the effects of the workplace on the external environment. Whether your organization is planning to conduct its first audit, or reviewing the steps before the next audit, proven methods are provided to best evaluate the effectiveness of your organization's industrial hygiene and safety program.

This guideline is intended to provide guidance on the recognition, evaluation, and control of Legionella colonization and amplification in common building water systems, both with and without any associated disease (legionellosis). This guideline expands upon information in the AIHA® publication, Field Guide for the Determination of Biological Contaminants in Environmental Samples, 2nd edition.
IH professionals will find this resource beneficial in allocating resources for assessing and managing occupational exposures to chemical, physical, and biological agents. Basic characterization; qualitative and quantitative risk assessment and priority setting; monitoring, interpretation, and decision making; recommendations; reporting; and evaluations are among the topics addressed.
Wildfire impact assessments are complex by nature and can involve the investigator, property owner, laboratory, and insurance company adjuster. The OEHS professional conducting a wildfire impact investigation must define its purpose and objectives and develop a working hypothesis to drive all phases of the assessment from initial inspection, to sampling, analysis, and data interpretation. This guide will assist OEHS professionals in conducting defensible wildfire impact assessments, and to evaluate restoration options to promote a safe and healthy indoor environment.
