The mentee should review the NIOSH Science Blog post from April 2014 regarding smartphone sound measurement apps.
What are you impressions of the findings? Were you surprised by the results? How will this impact your decision to purchase and use a sound measurement app? Discuss this topic with your mentor. Decide if you should develop a policy statement for your organization regarding the use of these apps. What other apps are available for industrial hygienists to use in their practice?
The mentee should review the following four NIOSH Blog Postings at a rate of one per week. They should focus on the technical content of the material. Is there practical application to the mentee’s place of employment? What has been their experience on this topic in their industrial hygiene practice?
