Unit Assignments

Overview of the Unit Assignments

In this course, you are asked to prepare a Comprehensive Report as the Unit VIII Final Project, which is made up of
various scenarios throughout each unit. Units II through VIII each contain a scenario for you to solve and to provide
recommendations. By the end of the course, you are asked to collect all of the individual responses from each scenario
and to insert them into a Comprehensive Report as the Unit VIII Final Project.

Theme and Setting for Unit Assignments

You are employed by Be Safe Consulting, Inc. (BSCI), as an entry-level safety consultant. You report directly to Bob
Sanders, the supervising Certified Safety Professional (CSP). For the last two months, you have been assigned to
conduct a comprehensive safety evaluation for Acme Manufacturing Co. Based on the observations, calculations, and
recommendations in Unit II through Unit VIII, prepare a Comprehensive Report to Bob Sanders, who will in turn use this
information to prepare a final report to Acme Manufacturing Co. Board of Directors. While the Board of Directors may be
looking for detailed business implications, Bob Sanders is looking for a detail of potential employee-hazard exposures and
your recommendation rationale (calculations, observations, and/or regulations).

Unit II Project

Ventilation Report

You are employed by Be Safe Consulting, Inc. (BSCI) as an entry-level safety consultant. You report directly to Bob
Sanders, the supervising Certified Safety Professional (CSP). BSCI has been contracted by Acme Manufacturing Co. to
conduct a study to determine employee exposures to various particulates and gases. In addition, your company has been
contracted to determine if the current ventilation systems that are in place are adequate to protect employees from an
over exposure to these chemicals. After conducting a field assessment, prepare a written report that Bob Sanders can
utilize to prepare a final comprehensive report for the Board of Directors. During your field investigation, you find the
following field observations:

Welding Room

The company has six welding booths, or areas that are partitioned only for the use of welding curtains. The booth is open
to mixing in the front and top. The company is worried about the welder’s exposure to iron oxide (PEL 10 mg/m3). For a
valid sample, you must have a minimum of six hours of sampling (The remaining two hours of the work day is considered

OSH 4308, Advanced Concepts in Environmental Safety Management 3

to be equal to or less than the sampled exposure. As a result of your air sampling over an eight-hour time period (i.e., the
work schedule), you receive the following analytical report:

Based on this information, determine the employee’s actual exposure to iron oxide, whether the samples were valid, and if
not, why? Show your work either in the report or as an appendix.

During further evaluations of the welding booths, you determine that each booth utilizes a local exhaust system to remove
the iron oxide and other contaminants prior to mixing with the breathing air. You take the following measurements:

Location
Air Velocity

Booth #3 710 16 12 Unknown

Booth #4 184 26 8 Unknown

Booth #5 Unknown 22 8 9721

Booth #6 Unknown 18 12 11421

After taking the air samples for employee exposures to iron oxide, then measuring and calculating the performance of the
local exhaust ventilation (paying particular attention to the specifics), what recommendations would you make to reduce
the employee’s overexposure, if any, to the ventilation systems?

Hazardous Materials Storage Area

As part of your assessment, you have been asked to evaluate and determine if the hazardous materials storage area has
adequate ventilation. In addition to the federal requirements, Acme’s insurance carrier requires that they have a minimum
of 12 air changes per hour. In your evaluation, you collect the following information:

Area Width

Area Length
(ft.)

Area Height
(ft.)

Ventilation
Supply #1

Determine if the current hazardous materials storage area is adequate and meets the requirements of Acme’s insurance
carrier. What recommendations would you make to correct the discrepancies, if any?

OSH 4308, Advanced Concepts in Environmental Safety Management 4

Foundry Room

Acme has a foundry room, which is nearing the point of being outdated in terms of engineering controls. For example, one
employee stands near an operation that has a canopy hood exhaust and routinely puts his face in the flow of the hood,
causing him to inhale particulates and gases that are directly being drawn into the hood. Part of your evaluation is to make
a recommendation for a new type of exhaust system. Which one would you recommend, and why?

Your report should be in APA style and be at least one page in length, double-spaced (not including title, references, and
appendix pages). Respond to the details in each section and be sure to include at least each of the following sections in
your report for this unit:

 Introduction: Briefly describe why the studies were performed (why you started the study).

 Report details: Briefly discuss the details of the scenario (what you found from the study).

 Conclusions and recommendations: Briefly describe your recommendations based on your findings (what you
recommend to resolve any deficiencies).

 Appendix: Provide measurements and calculations (show your work).

Unit III Project

Radiation Safety Report

The executives at Acme Manufacturing Co. were impressed by your first report, and they have asked you and BSCI to
return for more work. BSCI has been contracted by Acme Manufacturing Co. to conduct a study to determine employee
exposures to radiation. In addition, your company has been contracted to determine the effectiveness of engineering
controls, including shielding. After conducting a field assessment, prepare a written report for Bob Sanders (CSP) to
present to the Board of Directors. During your field investigation, you find the following field observations:

Test Equipment and Repair Facility

The company has an on-site test equipment and repair facility. Much of the test equipment contains a radiation source.
Normal practice inside the facility is to limit the time of exposure of employees working on this equipment as a method of
control. However, the company is looking at the possibility of installing lead shields or increasing the distance from the
source, thus increasing employee time working on equipment. Based on the following information determine the
employee’s exposure:

Location Employee
Distance

Bench #3 Rita Ray D’Ashun 0.5 ft. 2 ft. 110 mrem/h Unknown

Bench #5 Robert Long 1 ft. 3 ft. 137 mrem/h Unknown

Bench #6 Paul Row 0.75 ft. 1.5 ft. 102 mrem/h Unknown

Based on this information, determine the employee’s actual exposure rate to the radiation source. Show your work (either
in the report or as an appendix).

The second option under consideration is to install lead shields in order to reduce the employee’s dose rate. Using the
information provided in the table above, determine the intensity at the same distances listed above if a 5 cm lead shield
was placed between the source and the detector. [µ for lead, (662 keV gamma ray) = 1.23 cm-1]

Radar Testing Facility

As part of your assessment, you have been asked to evaluate the estimated power density levels for both near and far
fields. You have conducted your assessment and measurements with the following data:

recommend to resolve any deficiencies).

 Appendix: Provide measurements and calculations (show your work).

Unit IV Project

Hazardous Noises Report

After receiving good remarks from your previous work, you hear that Acme Manufacturing Co. has asked you and BSCI to
return for some additional work. BSCI has been contracted by Acme Manufacturing Co. to conduct a study to determine
employee exposures to noise. In addition, Acme Manufacturing Co. has requested that while on site, you conduct a needs
analysis to determine the development of a new safety training program. Explain your methodology and the steps in
conducting this needs analysis. After conducting a field assessment, prepare a written report for Bob Sanders (CSP) to
present to the Board of Directors. During your field investigation, you find the following field observations:

Machine Shop #1

The company has an on-site maintenance and repair facility. Inside Machine Shop #1, there are five employees that
operate a variety of machines, ranging from stationary and portable grinders, drill presses, and metal shearers. Based on
the information provided in the following table, determine the individual employee’s exposure: (DO NOT COMBINE

Carpentry Shop #2

Inside Carpentry Shop #2, there are six machines operating almost continuously, including table saws, planers, exhaust
systems, jointers, with 10 employees working in this area. To determine whether this table should be designated as a
hazardous noise environment, thus requiring employees to be entered into the hearing conservation program, you must
calculate combined exposures and treat the entire area as one noise source. The following table indicates the recorded
measurements that you collected during your on-site assessment. Does the data from this table indicate a hazardous
noise environment, and do you recommend entering employees into a hearing conservation program?

they have asked you to return to complete another job. BSCI has been contracted by Acme Manufacturing Co. to conduct
a study at one of its facilities to determine employee exposures to various thermal stressors at different times. You are to
conduct this study in January and July of 2012. After collecting and recording data from the field assessments, prepare a
written report for Bob Sanders (CSP) to present to the Board of Directors. During your field investigations, you find the
following field observations:

Security Personnel

The security personnel, while contracted by Acme, are still employees that need to be monitored. There are three main
entries that are staffed with security personnel. These entries have a booth, which is roughly 5’x5’ with no heating or
cooling. Each security officer works an eight hour shift, with two separate fifteen minute breaks (one during the first half of
the shift, and the second during the second half of the shift) and one 30-minute meal break. The only opportunity to
rehydrate is made during the break or meal periods. There are no drinking fountains or coolers in the security booths.

Unit VI Project

Hydrostatics and Hydraulics Report

BSCI has another job for you at Acme Manufacturing Co., and Bob Sanders (your supervisor) has asked you to complete
it. BSCI has been contracted by Acme Manufacturing Co. to collect measurements of various industrial storage facilities
and certain aspects of its fire suppression system. After collecting field measurements and calculating values, prepare a
written report for Bob Sanders (CSP) to present to the Board of Directors. During your field investigations, you find the
following field observations:

Piping System Repair

A piping system repair must be made to a vertical piping system. The pipe is 60 ft. long prior to its turn to a horizontal
direction. There is a repair that must be done at 35 feet above the floor. The pipe is filled with a liquid having the same
properties as water. Due to operational considerations, the pipe cannot be drained. The fluid is considered non-hazardous
due to its chemical properties. Before the repair can be completed, a decision has to be made about the material to use
and the method in which the repair can occur safely. At the location of the pipe repair, what is the pressure of the fluid?
(NOTE: the height of the cylinder is the length of the pipe minus the height of the repair from the floor.)

Water Storage Tank

Some repairs have been made to the existing water storage tank. New valves and piping systems are to be installed in
the distribution system. You have been asked to calculate the velocity of the fluid through the bottom drain opening and
prior to entry into the distribution system. This velocity will help to determine the specific valve that must be installed prior
to the distribution system. The tank at its highest point is 24 feet. Determine the velocity of the fluid at fluid heights of 24
feet, 18 feet, 12 feet, and 6 feet.

Fire Suppression System

In a horizontally installed piping system, water flows through a 10 inch pipe. The head loss in a 500 foot section is 40 feet.
The residual pressure at Point A is 55 psi and the velocity at Point A is 7 ft./s. If the velocity at Point B is 8.5 ft/s, what is
the residual pressure at Point B?

Your report should be in APA style and be at least one page in length, double-spaced (not including title, references, and
appendix pages). Respond to the details in each section and be sure to include at least each of the following sections in
your report for this unit:

 Introduction: Briefly describe why the studies were performed (why you started the study).

been contracted by Acme Manufacturing Co. to conduct a fire protection and prevention inspection. During the inspection,
you make several notes, which you use to prepare a written report. Later, Bob Sanders (CSP) intends to utilize your report
as he presents the details to the Board of Directors. During your field investigations, you find the following data:

Welding Shop

In the welding shop, you collect measurements of the floor space which measures 125 ft. x 80 ft. In the center of the
room, near a column, you notice that there is one fire extinguisher, which is a 2A10B:C rated extinguisher. Determine if
this is an adequate number of extinguishers for this area. Explain.

Molding Shop

In the molding shop, employees prepare resins to shape the molds used in creating one of the products manufactured by
Acme. The area has a strong odor of acetone, which is used significantly in the preparation of the resin molds. In this
area, you notice that there is a sprinkler system, and the sprinkler head is green. What is the maximum ceiling
temperature for this area?

As mentioned, employees in this shop use a significant amount of acetone in the preparation process. Also while
conducting the inspection of this shop, you notice an overhead gas space heater with an open flame. What are the
UEL/UFL and LEL/LFL of acetone? What actions would you take immediately in this area? Explain.
