<< Back to 2005 Gulf-Coast Hurricane Response


Please Note:
Sample Type: A = Area; P = Personal; S=Screen
PEL = OSHA Permissible Exposure Limit (usually a 480 minute exposure, value listed for reference)
AL = OSHA Action Level (used with noise exposures only)
Non-Detected (ND) = Exposures less than Reporting Limit
NA = Not Available. Information not recorded when sample was taken.

a = Results reported are time weighted averages for the actual sampling period.
b = For comparative purposes only, the TWA > PEL/AL box is checked Y if the actual TWA is greater than the OSHA 8-hour PEL. Does not necessarily represent a legal PEL violation. For additional information, see Information on Sampling Results.

Total Fiber sample results may also include asbestos fibers.
