Easy Modeling

Forecasting Occupational Exposures Using “Well Mixed Room” Models
If we don’t have the resources to sample or if we need to quickly answer questions about probable concentrations, modeling can provide estimates of potential exposures.

Source Reduction

Practical Issues in Minimizing Welding Fume Exposures
The first and best strategy is to control hazards at the source. In the case of welding, source reduction is most readily achieved by substituting a lower-emission welding process for a high-emission welding process.

A Widespread Concern

Identifying and Assessing PCBs in the Built Environment
Industrial hygienists are well suited to take a leading role in the anticipation, recognition, evaluation and control of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), which have been identified in high concentrations in a number of building materials.
