Risk Assessment – The PEL is not a License to Kill

The author demonstrates that the Industrial Hygiene profession has mistakenly believed that employers can’t be cited where workers suffer harm, but the employer is in compliance with the exposure limit or other OSHA standard. OSHA’s authority, and employers’ duties are illustrated by a court decision titled “UAW v General Dynamics.”
