Project #45034 - Advanced Industrial Hygiene

Research Paper

Research an industrial hygiene sampling event and develop a comprehensive exposure assessment report using either one of the following topics:

ï‚· Asbestos exposure from the World Trade Center disaster

ï‚· The Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill

 

Assume that you work for Acme Industrial Hygiene Consultants and you are at an event conducting air samples. In your paper, you will discuss:

ï‚· What was going on during sampling?

ï‚· What was your sampling method?

ï‚· What are your results?

 

You are expected to use the AIHA Statistical Spreadsheet to assist you in analyzing the data. (See the AIHA Statistical Spreadsheet file & instructions)You will also need to discuss:

ï‚· The descriptive statistics for the dataset

ï‚· The number of samples above the OEL (if any)

ï‚· What the 95th percentile exposure level would be?

ï‚· What exposure category you would put the workers' exposure into (e.g., 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4)?

 

You will find that each data set has a number of samples broken down into different activities. Assume that each activity would be a different SEG. Select 1 or 2 SEGs for the purpose of your analysis and report.

 

If you choose to use the World Trade Center data, you can choose from either the Lower Manhattan Asbestos Data, or the Staten Island Asbestos Data. You can find the data at the following OSHA website: http://www.osha.gov/nycdisaster/wtc.html

 

If you choose to use the Deepwater Horizon dataset, focus on the potential benzene exposure. You will also need to select one SEG / task for the purpose of your research (e.g., boat operators, beach cleanup). The dataset is very large and you will want to keep your research focused to a manageable level. It would be acceptable to select a few of the SEGs for comparison. For example, you could compare the boat operator’s exposure to that of the beach cleanup crew.

You can find the data on the OSHA website at the following address: http://www.osha.gov/oilspills/index_sampling.html
