Laboratory supervisors will:
1. Assure that temperature and humidity recording systems are

While not an environmental requirement, it is
recommended that annunciators which provide audible notice of a drift from
temperature control be installed.
2. Assure that the recorded environment plots are monitored at
the beginning of the workday and after the lunch break. These observations
are especially important when environmental conditioning equipment is
returned to operation after an interruption.
When records indicate an
adverse trend, readings at more frequent intervals will be taken until
conditions again become stable.
3. Evaluate recorded departure from standard conditions to
determine cause and initiate prompt action to regain acceptable environment.
