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

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 In recent years, accelerating industrialization has made air pollution more serious. According to the statistics of The Global Burden of Disease, Particulate Matter (PM) is one of the important air pollutants, it exists as a liquid or solid in the atmosphere. According to previous studies, PM with a diameter of less than 2.5 microns (PM2.5) is more dangerous than PM with a diameter of less than 10 microns (PM10), as it can penetrate the respiratory barrier and enter circulatory system of the body. At that time, it combined with toxic substances that endanger human health. However, previous studies have not assessed the relationship between PM level and employee severance level. How training of occupational safety and health courses for employees affects the efficiency of working time as well as the cost that Sun Coast has spent is an issue that needs to be addressed in the research. this. In 2009, Mungen and Gurcanli conducted research and proposed methods to reduce the risk of occupational accidents. Ulubeyli et al. (2015) studied to develop awareness of the impact of occupational safety and health on workers. From there, we will see the correlation between the cost of training on occupational safety and the number of
