Recommendations for Controlling Hazards
Please review the entire project prior to accepting this requires completion on the designated template provided
As the environmental health and safety (EHS) manager, you have been asked to evaluate an existing operation to determine employee’s current exposure to hexane, which is a chemical used in painting processes.
You are to complete an evaluation of the employee’s current exposure by determining the employee’s exposure to hexane (toxic contaminant) by calculating time-weighted average (TWA) and compare it to the permissible exposure limit (PEL) and modify the PEL, if necessary. If it is necessary to modify the PEL, explain the reasoning why it is to be modified. Once the current exposure has been determined, select the appropriate ventilation system between dilution and local exhaust that is the best choice to control the concentration of the contamination. Ensure that you provide the reasons why you think your selection of ventilation system is the best choice. You are to provide the results in a three-page project report using the Unit III Consulting Report template .
