Abstract
I want to give a definition of control technology. As applied to the industrial workplace, control technology consists of engineering control, work practices, and personal protective equipment. With respect to engineering controls, there are several types in the hierarchy - with some considerably better than others. Engineering control can be designed into the process or the process machinery initially or it can be obtained by making changes after the installation of the process machinery. This type of control can either completely eliminate the emission or substantially reduce it. It can prevent emissions into the workplace. Of course, if you can keep the emissions out of the workplace, you have gone about 99 per cent or better toward controlling exposure. Another method would be the modification of operational process machinery or processes. This can do the same thing to some degree, but it's obvious that it may be very difficult for many processes and probably nearly impossible in a majority of places if the process is already in operation.
