NIOSH has embarked on a project to update its exposure sampling strategies manual. The current NIOSH strategy has a number of limitations. This is an opportunity to develop a robust and comprehensive exposure assessment strategy. Some of the key features of such a strategy are outlined. The importance of accurate professional judgment and exposure modeling is discussed. Bayesian statistics offers a rational approach to integrating sampling data, professional judgments, and the outputs of exposure models in a comprehensive framework.
