Abstract The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with the support of 12 cosponsors and over 175 participants recently held the Direct-Reading Exposure Assessment Methods (D.R.E.A.M.) Workshop (November 13-14, 2008; Arlington, VA; Hilton Crystal City). The purpose of the workshop was to gather stakeholder input from academia, labor, management, developers, governmental agencies, and manufacturers on the research needs in the area of direct reading methods for assessing occupational exposures. In the morning of the first day, there was a general session attended by all meeting registrants. The general session included a group of plenary state-of-the-art presentations by invited speakers that addressed direct reading exposure assessment methods for workplaces and issues relevant to the broad range of employment sectors and occupational hazards, such as validation, data handling, interpretation, etc. After the general session, there were six concurrent breakout sessions divided by hazard. The occupational hazards were aerosols, gases/vapors, ergonomics, noise, radiation, and surface sampling/biomonitoring.
