Due to the frequent occurrence in which the TLV-STEL and IDLH values are exceeded in normal use, a method to evaluate total PAA vapor exposure is needed.
Figure 1 shows that the proposed framework IDLH includes three components.
For the critical limit, half of the IDLH (immediately dangerous to life or health concentration) values are used.
When applying these principles, one must question the job's priority level, the appropriate personnel to perform the work (which will determine the GFE personnel who should perform space testing and certification procedures), the ability to apply personal protective measures (respiratory protection, portable ventilation, etc.) to mitigate the risks, and the nature of the space (to determine the appropriate level, such as the commanding officer for IDLH spaces or for hot work adjacent to magazines).
The company's 7800S-BA full facepiece is available in three sizes and is approved for use with three SCBA systems in environments that are immediately dangerous to life and health (IDLH).
your work site will be considered IDLH [Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health], and they are really picky about that."
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health has developed the immediately dangerous to life and health (IDLH) values for methane and petroleum distillates that are 10% of the LEL.
* They describe IDLH ("immediately dangerous to life or health") situations.
The odor threshold is 0.004 mg/[m.sup.3], the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) threshold limit value ceiling (TLV-C) is 0.39 mg/[m.sup.3], the NIOSH recommended exposure limit ceiling (REL-C) is 0.40 [micro]g/ [m.sup.3], and the concentration NIOSH deems immediately dangerous to life and health (IDLH) is 2.0 [micro]g/[m.sup.3] (American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists [ACGIH], 2008; NIOSH, 2007).
This concentration is just below the NIOSH immediately dangerous to life and health (IDLH) level of 100 ppm over 15 minutes.
