Webinar: AIHA's New Direct Reading Instruments Technical Framework: Setting the Standard of Care

Our customers have a new resource to help you select and operate direct reading instruments (DRIs) and their sensor components. In late spring of 2020, the AIHA board has approved and posted the new DRI Body of Knowledge (BoK): Guidance on Use of Direct Reading Instruments.

Some questions that this BoK can help answer include:

  • Do instrument users have the competencies necessary to appropriately operate an instrument?
  • Does our given program or policy address the elements of appropriate use (like functional testing)?
  • Does a training program evaluate all the identified competencies for basic users?

We're glad to have Spencer Pizzani, a member of the AIHA volunteer workgroup that produced this new resource, to help explain the new technical framework and how it can be used.

In our webinar, he covers:

  • What's new in the 2020 technical framework and how does it differ from 2015's Field Use of Direct-Reading Instruments for Detection of Gases and Vapors
  • The addition of specific competencies for direct reading instrument users
  • Changes to the framework for instrument and technological advancements
  • How to use the new guidance documents in your operations
  • How the new technical framework can help improve your practice or program
  • Ask the Expert: Your questions answered
