ForensisGroup Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) Expert Witnesses deal with the legal exposure limit for employee exposure to a chemical substance or physical agent.
Our experts are knowledgeable about the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) Permissible Exposure Limits, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Recommended Exposure Limits (RELs), and the ACGIH® Threshold Limit Values (TLVs®) and Biological Exposure Indices (BEIs®).
Some of the issues with which they assist law firms include Time Weighted Average (TWA), Short-Term Exposure Limit (STEL), Workplace Environmental Exposure Limit (WEEL), and Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health (IDLH) exposures.
However, many of OSHA’s PELs are outdated and inadequate for ensuring protection of worker health as many of the PELs were issued shortly after adoption of the Occupational Safety and Health Act in 1970 and have not been updated. OSHA recommends that employers consider using alternative occupational exposure limits—some of the alternative occupational exposure limits may be hazardous to workers, even when the exposure levels are in compliance with the PELs.
