If you are interested in taking part in The Air in Saltaire then we need a few details about you. Please fill in this survey and we’ll set you up to start monitoring:
Volunteers’ Survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/8LTCZYP
The monitors are really simple to use, but it is important that our volunteers understand what we are asking of them! As a guide we have prepared a volunteers’ information sheet: Monitoring_Information_Sheet Please take the time to look through this information.
In order to interpret the data we ask you to fill out a worksheet with some details about when and where you did the sampling. We will provide copies of these worksheets, but duplicates can be found here.
Static Monitoring: Worksheet_Static
Personal Exposure Monitoring: Worksheet_Personal_Exposure
Feel free to fill these out either on paper or electronically.
There is information on using the monitor in the User Guide
