Our findings that 65% of officials exceeded ACGIH noise exposure criteria are consistent with the findings of Cranston and co-authors (2013).
Ademas de este metodo de renovacion por hora, existe otro recomendado por el ACGIH y que se basa en la cantidad de contaminante generado y en los limites permisibles para calcular el caudal de aire necesario, mediante la siguiente ecuacion:
Numerical solutions from the proposed equations were compared to solutions from Hemeon and ACGIH equations for plume area, mean velocity and volumetric flow (ACGIH, 2004; Hemeon, 1999).

Sin embargo hoy, debido al uso del arseniuro de galio, los organismos internacionales de salud y seguridad dan los siguientes valores maximos exposicion a arsina: PEL de OSHA 0,05 ppm/8h/5d semana y TLV de ACGIH 0,005 ppm promedio ponderado 8h/5d semana; ambas recomiendan que tan solo con la mitad de esos limites y aun en ausencia de sintomas se examine al trabajador y se indique los siguientes examenes: grupo sanguineo; sangre oculta en orina; hemoglobina, hemoglobina libre en plasma, hemoglobina en orina; creatinina; bilirrubinas; nitrogeno ureico en sangre (BUN) y radiografia de pulmones, en ese orden de prioridades (22,61).
The ACGIH has recently put a cat among the pigeons in that it has given advanced notice of a change in the TLV for nPB.
The hazard detector covers the full ACGIH/ICNIRP UV spectral effectiveness function using two sensor/filter/diffuser combinations, providing separate ACGIH UV-A (325 to 400 nm) and ACGIH UVC/B (250 to 325 nm) spectral responses for increased accuracy by reducing spectral mismatch errors.
After a 5 year notice period, ACGIH adopted a 1 PPM TLV for Hydrogen Sulfide, reduced from the former level of 10 PPM.
