Unit III journal

 Imagine that you are an industrial hygienist or a safety officer at an organization. Describe how you would determine which occupational exposure limits (OELs) should be applied at your workplace. Should you use the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) permissible exposure limits (PELs), the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) threshold limit values (TLVs), or the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recommended exposure limits (RELs)? Explain which one you would choose and why.

Your journal entry must be at least 200 words. No references or citations are necessary.
