||This draft document results from an expert meeting at the WHO and subsequent consultations. It is in limited circulation; an official version will be published later. Direct-reading instruments are those that perform qualitative and quantitative analysis for a specific chemical, group of chemicals or particles and whose result is directly indicated on a meter, recorder or other display medium associated with the sampling and sensor portions of the measuring system. The report covers: the strategy for occupational hygiene evaluations, guidelines for the selection and use of direct-reading instruments and descriptions of selected direct-reading instruments. Types of airborne contaminants, participants in the expert meeting, WHO Collaborating Centres for Occupational Health, examples of hidden hazards, some calibration procedures and manufacturers of direct-reading instruments in different countries are listed in appendices.
