Abstract
The preparation of a plan to meet emission standards for acrylonitrile (107131) based on industrial hygiene survey data, technical aspects of engineering controls, and economic considerations of management is described. The three alternative sets of permissible exposures for acrylonitrile proposed by OSHA in January, 1978, are presented, and Environmental Protection Agency standards are explained. Techniques for controlling worker exposure are discussed and grouped by controls of source, general workplace, and the worker. The authors describe corporate staff responsibilities, including the identification and ranking of all emission sources, identification of available control techniques, estimation of the time and cost requirements and impact, implementation priorities, assessment of safety and environmental impact, integration of compliance activities with corporate facility planning activities, and appropriate revision of the corporate strategic plan.
