"The Handbook of Health Hazard Control in the Chemical Process Industry brings clarity and common sense to the often daunting task of controlling hazardous emissions and conditions in a chemical plant operation. It gives industrial hygiene and engineering professionals swift access to guidelines for eliminating health hazards in chemical process plants while strictly complying with the latest OSHA and EPA regulations on hazard control. This authoritative reference reflects the new workplace realities of the '90s as well as the latest legislation, providing a state-of-the-art look at the tools and procedures for monitoring and controlling worker exposure to a host of environmental hazards." "Responding to the far-reaching implications of the impact of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, this indispensable volume examines not only the significance of the modified allowable release rates for many "air toxic" chemicals, but how these new laws affect specific engineering practices. The handbook also offers a detailed look at the latest technological innovations in exposure control, featuring specific control options for most of the equipment used in chemical plants today, including valves, control valves, flanges and connections, and rotating equipment." "Designed for daily on-the-job use, the Handbook of Health Hazard Control in the Chemical Process Industry sheds light on such basic procedures as exposure evaluation, emissions measurement and estimation, sampling, and exposure assessment. Offering a thoroughly up-to-date look at the full range of exposure sources from fugitive emissions and major process hazards, the book investigates such rarely examined phenomena as sewer and drainage system emissions as well as fire effects on valve packings and gaskets." "In addition, this practical and user-friendly work includes criteria for purchasing the most cost-effective control options as well as easy-to-understand descriptions of equipment and installation procedures. Featuring hands-on insights from two veterans in the field of occupational health, the Handbook of Health Hazard Control in the Chemical Process Industry is an essential information source for industrial and government hygienists, chemical and environmental engineers, and safety personnel."--Jacket.
