Since the development of control banding approaches, primarily by the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry in the 1980's- 1990's, there have been numerous banding approaches developed for use by Industrial Hygienists and others. We have found in our research that there tends to be confusion on terminology, how these methods are used, what the results provide, how they should be interpreted, and how accurate and precise are the methods. This session will provide an overview of each of the more commonly used approaches and attempt to place each into context. Each methodology presented will be categorized in terms of inputs needed, how the data are used and the expected outputs. The goals, advantages and disadvantages of each approach will be described based on review of published information gathered during our research. The goal of this presentation will be to enable users to select the most effective approach for their situation, based on the data availability and tool viability, while understanding their limitations. This important and still developing set of tools can be critical to good decision making by health and safety professionals and others. The key is understanding each tool and what it proposes to do.
