Share with the class an incident that involved biological hazards. This could be an incident that occurred at home or at work. Describe the circumstances and what biological hazards were present. Also, discuss the steps that were taken as a result of the incident.
As a safety professional, you have been asked to create a handbook explaining the various types of biological agents employees may have contact with in the workplace. In addition, you have been asked to include information regarding the basic exposure mechanisms for biological agents, methods of evaluation and control for biological agents, and methods of sampling for biological agents.
This assignment should consist of no less than three pages, and any outside sources, including your textbook, should be referenced and cited using proper APA formatting.
You are an industrial hygienist for a major pharmaceutical company. The CEO has contacted you regarding a new product line that will be produced in your facility. The new product involves the handling and use of an engineered nanomaterial. To date, your company’s health and safety program has not had to address any safety concerns associated with handling and use of these materials. Using the NIOSH document from the required reading as your authoritative source (http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/docs/2014-102/pdfs/2014-102.pdf), prepare a three- to five-page “white paper” that provides an overview of engineered materials and includes a discussion of the following:
? background and industry overview of engineered nanomaterials,
? exposure control strategies,
? nanotechnology processes and engineering controls,
? hazard control evaluations,
? health hazards associated with exposures, and
? conclusions and recommendations.
As you prepare your paper, keep in mind that this should be a high-level overview that is understandable to all employees in the organization: from upper management to production workers. All sources used, including your textbook, should be cited and referenced properly using APA format.
