Monitoring protocols will be pursuant to the manufacturer's guidelines.
Calibration will be performed, at a minimum, prior to each day's use
in accordance with the manufacturer's guidelines. A copy of each instrument's
manual will be kept in the Support Zone or in the field vehicle. All
action level criteria are measured as close to the agents route of entry
of the employee as possible. For inhalation chemicals in the employee's
breathing zone, the CGI (a measure of flammable gas) is measured at the
borehole, excavation (if performed), or well headspace, for noise the
monitor would be placed as close as possible to the ear. Daily monitoring
logs will be maintained by the Incident Safety Officer. These records
will contain the names of all personnel conducting work, describe the
work being performed, and describe any new procedures established for
performing work. In addition, these records will list the types of air
monitoring equipment being used; how and when this equipment was calibrated;
air monitoring results; the level of PPE being used; and complete descriptions
of all injuries, accidents, physical complaints, and unusual occurrences.
