OEHS Professionals: Do you routinely sample for airborne particulates using NIOSH 0500, NIOSH 0600, and NIOSH 5000? Make sure your laboratory partner values continuous improvement. Encourage them to enroll in our new program and be sure to Ask for a PAT Report in late 2022 to see their performance in the Particulates program.
Laboratories: Make sure you are up-to-date - enroll in the Airborne Particulates program, starting October 2022. The program streamlines the proficiency testing process by providing all the information needed to determine the net mass loading in mg and uses the same media (37-mm, 5-µm PVC filter) as the NIOSH 0500, NIOSH 0600, and NIOSH 5000 methods. The range of the program is 0.5-5 mg per filter, four filters will be sent per round, and the rounds will take place in April and October.
