CIH Category: IH Ethics
You collect 3 air samples using OVM badges, however you lose one of the badges before it is analyzed. The two remaining badges are found to be non-detect for the exposure substance. In this case you should:
a) Assume the missing badge was also non-detect
b) Assume the missing badge was above the PEL
c) Make no assumptions about the missing badge results and you may need to re-sample
d) Disregard the results from the remaining two badges and collect three new samples
The Answer is “c” Make no assumptions about the missing badge results and you may need to re-sample
