Case Study (IH). Analysis of an Air-Sampling Report

 

Click here to view a PDF of a typical sampling report. Compose a two- to three-page analysis that addresses the following questions:

1. What is the purpose of the exposure assessment?

2. Why was the exposure assessment conducted?

3. What type of sampling (personal or area) was conducted, and why?

4. What are the chemicals that were sampled, and what are their hazards?

5. What are the most likely routes of exposure given the nature of the business?

6. Describe the sampling equipment and methods used to collect the sample.

7. Provide an overview of the results, including an explanation of the “additive formula,” and discuss them in relation to the applicable exposure limit.

8. Were there any off-normal or unplanned incidents relative to sample collection?

9. Provide a summary of the recommendations made by Sam “IH” Sampler.

10. Comment on the thoroughness of the study. Did you feel that the exposure assessment was comprehensive? If not, what additional information would you provide?

11. Comment on who the target audience would be for this report. If you were the plant director of ACME Printing, would you be comfortable with sharing this with an auditor from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)? Do you have any concerns related to sharing this with your employees?

 

In addition to addressing the listed questions, you should consider using additional background materials to support your analysis. Materials should be cited using APA formatting style to include in-text citations and a reference list. You should also paraphrase information obtained from outside sources; that is, use your own words. Do not simply cut and paste materials from outside sources. Limit directly quoted materials to no more than three to five sentences for the entire case study overview, and always use quotation marks for direct quotes of outside sources

Environmental Discussion

Environmental Discussion. 1. Discuss the following question. Write about 250 words.

This week the readings deal in part with the “crop” mentality toward a nation’s wildlife, which uses words such as natural “resources” or wildlife “inventory.” In your view, does this contradict ecological views? Explain.

 

2. Make a comment to the following respond. It only need 3-4 sentences.

I think it’s the context in which this verbiage is used that makes it acceptable or not. When speaking in regard to wildlife populations for census purposes, wildlife “inventory” is acceptable. Actually, wildlife “inventory” doesn’t really bother me that much because the ways in which I can see it being used is for population count; for example, whether to know the amount of tags to issue for hunting season, or to know if a species is becoming endangered. 

The verbiage that does bother me, however, is “pest control” and “pesticides” speaking specifically of animals, not bugs. I am not so naive to think that animal populations need to be controlled at times in order to prevent overpopulation and in turn decimate an ecosystem, however, by using a “pesticide” sounds horrifying. I work for the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife and get calls on a regular basis inquiring if we “spray for snakes” or wanting removal of non-aggressive alligators living in a river where humans are. A lot of the calls I take make me realize that humans want to coexist with nature as long as it doesn’t inconvenience them. My personal thoughts on these calls… alligators live in rivers. You wouldn’t call to have a grizzly shot because it lives in a forest where you happen to be. You wouldn’t call to have a 12-point buck killed because it’s on your property and you’re scared. Aggressive animals and reptiles are another story all together, those need to be handled with force. As for the snakes, no, we don’t spray for snakes…

Environmental Epidemiology and Health Hazards

Environmental epidemiology is the primary scientific discipline that establishes exposure-disease relationships in environmental health. For example, epidemiologists determined that exposure to asbestos causes mesothelioma. This is one example of chemical agent leading to health hazards. Other environmental hazards, such as air and water pollution, have been linked to adverse health outcomes.

Using your course textbook, the South University Online Library, and the Internet, research on the following topics:Significant Episodes in which an Environmental Hazard Caused Adverse Health Outcomes in HumansThree Major Historical Events in Environmental Epidemiology

On the basis of your research and your readings and understanding of the above topics, answer the following questions:Which environmental hazard, such as the pollutant or pollutants, caused the most adverse health outcomes and why?What are the various adverse health outcomes that occurred as a result of exposure to the environmental hazard?What are the steps that were taken to prevent the adverse health outcomes from occurring? Should there be any other step that was necessary to prevent the adverse health outcome? Explain.Suggest the ways to prevent future occurrences of such episodes.Is there an association between environmental hazards and adverse health outcomes in humans? Why or why not?Analyze and explain the exposure-disease relationship for each of these three events.What do you think is the impact of these events on the communities where they occurred?
