Dec. 15, 2022 -- SoundPLANmanda 1.0 is the new program for occupational health and safety experts to help them assess environmental hazards and map and analyze noise in workplaces. The tool provides the possibility to map and analyze harmful immissions, including noise, temperature, or air pollution.
Data Import interface for georeferenced measurement data and display it with interpolated color coded iso contour lines.
Flexible Analysis, to combine several measurements with user definable formulas to show, for example, the level change or level above a limit value.
Analyze the noise load of a worker according to Occupational Health and Safety Act (OSHA), the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and further European legislation.
Data of SoundPLANmanda is clearly structured with the ability to have multiple mapping areas, such as different floors. The results documentation is presented in easy-to-use map layouts, but with multiple possibilities to adapt to the requested user requirements.
1,4-Dioxane is a colorless liquid with a sweet odor that easily dissolves in water. It is used primarily as a solvent in the manufacture of chemicals and as a laboratory reagent. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that 1,4-dioxane has been found in groundwater at sites throughout the United States and goes on to share that it does not readily biodegrade in the environment.
The solvent is used in a number of industries and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)...
Each year, January is recognized as Firefighter Cancer Awareness Month. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the U.S. Fire Administration both state that cancer is a leading cause of death among firefighters and that research suggests they are at a higher risk of certain types of cancers when compared to the general population.
Firefighters can be exposed to hundreds of different chemicals in the form of gases, vapors, and particulates, and some of these chemical substances are...
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recently announced a new study conducted by the agency. The study examined the differences in exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19 among people who worked outside of the home in non-healthcare settings.
NIOSH researchers partnered with six states to collect information about workers who were diagnosed with COVID-19 between September 2020 and June 2021. The study found the following:
· Of the 1,111 survey respondents, 19.4%...
2-Butoxyethanol is used in a number of industries, including as a solvent. It can be found in paint strippers, thinners and some household cleaners. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) describes the organic compound as a colorless liquid with a mild odor. The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) reports it smells like ether and goes by many names.
Examples of some of the workers that NIOSH reports could be at risk of being exposed to 2-butoxyethanol include:
Carbon disulfide (CS2) is described by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) as a colorless liquid with an ether-like odor. The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) reports that carbon disulfide evaporates at room temperature and the vapor is more than twice as heavy as air.
Occupational exposure can cause dizziness, poor sleep, headache, anxiety, anorexia, weight loss, and vision changes according to NIOSH. It can harm the eyes, kidneys, blood, heart, liver,...
