UNIT V JOURNAL

Instructions

Several organizations publish occupational exposure limits (OELs) including the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) permissible exposure limits (PELs), the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists’ (ACGIH) threshold limit values (TLVs), and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health’s (NIOSH) recommended exposure limits (RELs). Only OSHA’s PELs are legally enforceable.

Hazard Occupational Exposure Limits (OEL)s
Manganese Fume 5 mg/m3 (OSHA Ceiling )
0.1 mg/m3 (ACGIH 8-hour TWA (I))
Copper Fume 0.1 mg/m3 (OSHA 8-hour TWA)
0.2 mg/m3 (ACGIH 8-hour TWA)
Lead Fume 0.05 mg/m3 (OSHA 8-hour TWA)
0.05 mg/m3 (ACGIH 8-hour TWA
1,2,4 trimethylbenzene OSHA – None Established
25 ppm (ACGIH 8-hour TWA TLV)
Toluene 200 ppm (OSHA 8-hour TWA)
300 ppm (OSHA Ceiling)

0.5 mg/m3 (NIOSH 10-hour TWA REL)

Part I: For each of the chemical hazards answer the following:

  • Compare your calculated exposures in Unit IV to one of the occupational exposure limits (OELs) in the table.
  • Does the calculated exposure exceed the OEL you chose?
  • Discuss why you chose the OELs you used.
  • Provide your opinion as to whether the risk associated with each exposure is an acceptable level of risk.
