A capillary column gas chromatography method was used for the analysis of sulfur compounds such as hydrogen sulfide, methyl mercaptan, dimethyl sulfide, and dimethyl disulfide in ambient air. The concentration of these sulfur compounds is typically very low (low to sub ppb) in ambient air. Their odor threshold is at the low ppb levels so it is also necessary to make field measurements near odorous sulfur sources such as refineries, pulp and paper mills, etc. because of the hi…

Safety Matters/Teen Workplace Safety Beta Group Task Force

Volunteer opportunity for AIHA members:
I am currently chairing the Safety Matters/Teen Workplace Safety AIHA Beta Group Task Force. We are just getting started and I am  accepting AIHA member volunteers to serve on this task force. Like any task force, this will require a few conference calls and several emails with a specific time limit. Please contact me if you are interested in serving in this capacity.

What is Safety Matters? This general awareness training program developed jointly by the National Institute of Occupational Heath and Safety (NIOSH) and the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) is designed to teach young workers how to identify workplace hazards and know their rights as workers.

Why is this important? Here are some statistics you may not know:  "Approximately 1.6 million U.S. teens (aged 15–17) work.Every nine minutes, a U.S. teen is injured on the job.On average, each year:59,800 workers under the age of 18 are sent to the ER for job-related injuries37 …
