would be valuable to know if training has been successful in reducing lost-time hours and, if so, how to predict lost-time hours from training expenditures. Sound-Level Exposure Sun Coast’s contracts generally involve work in noisy environments due to a variety of heavy equipment being used for both remediation and the clients’ ongoing operations on the job sites. Standard ear-plugs are adequate to protect employee hearing if the decibel levels are less than 120 decibels (dB). For environments with noise-levels exceeding 120 dB, more advanced and expensive hearing protection is required, such as ear-muffs. Data have been collected for the primary variables that are believed to contribute to excessive noise. It would be important if these data could be used to predict the dB levels of work environments before placing employees on site. New Employee Training All new Sun Coast employees participate in general health and safety training. The training program was revamped and implemented six months ago. Data is available for two Groups; a) Group A employees who participated in the previous training program, and b) Group B employees who participated in the revised training program. It is necessary to know if the revised training program is more effective than the prior training program. Lead Exposure Employees working on job sites to remediate lead must be monitored. Lead levels in blood are measured as micrograms of lead per deciliter of blood (μg/dL). A base-line is taken

INSERT TITLE HERE 6 pre-exposure, then post-exposure at regular intervals, and at the conclusion of the remediation. Data are available for 49 employees who recently concluded a two-year-long lead remediation project. It is necessary to determine if blood lead levels have increased. Return-On-Investment Sun Coast would like to know if all lines of service provide the same return-on- investment. Return-on-investment data is available for air monitoring, soil remediation, water reclamation, and health and safety training. If return-on-investment is not the same for all lines of service, it would be helpful to know were differences exist. Literature Review Include this information here. Important note: Refer to the information presented in Unit I and the Unit II assignment to complete this section of the project. Research Objectives Include this information here. Compose short, direct, statements about the objectives of the study.
