Question
Answered step-by-step

Attached is everything that this assignment involves. This topic is

for someone with knowledge of Industrial Engineering, Safety Engineering, Occupational Health & Safety, or related field. I said in a previous post, if you are unable to accomplish by the deadline, please let me know so I can pose the question to someone else. One tutor waited until after the deadline to say he could not help. Thank you.

Read the background and scenario descriptions in Sections I and II of the instructions. Prepare a paper addressing each of the subsections of Section III. Make sure you read each section completely and carefully before preparing your paper. I. Background Acme International has a small manufacturing shop that includes two welding stations and a separate paint room. Two welders produce small components for automobiles using stainless steel and MIG welding. After grinding has been performed in the welding bays, the parts are painted in the paint room. The only ventilation present is a ceiling fan in each room that is used for general dilution ventilation. Note: Because of specifications from their client, substitution is not a viable control method for either the welding or painting operations. An industrial hygienist (IH) recently conducted air monitoring at the facility. In the welding bays, the IH conducted initial monitoring with a personal sample collected on each welder and analyzed for hexavalent chromium (Cr+6). The results showed that time weighted average (TWA) exposures were 6.2 micrograms per cubic meter (µg/m3 ) and 6.6 µg/m3 . The OSHA TWA PEL is 5 µg/m3 with an action level of 2.5 µg/m3 . The paint area uses primer and paint containing benzene, ethyl benzene, toluene, and xylene. Workers in the area also use acetone on rags to clean surfaces. One employee was sampled for the entire work shift. A second employee was sampled for 15 minutes (STEL sample) while cleaning with the acetone and for 15 minutes (STEL sample) while mixing the primer and paint. The table below summarizes the results of the sampling, along with the applicable permissible MOS 5201, Safety Engineering 3 exposure limits (PELs) established by OSHA and the guidelines (threshold limit values or TLVs) published by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (AGGIH).
