Osha - Epa Standards Ignored - All Gulf Beaches Should Be Closed

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


by Lauren D.Ragland –  [email protected]

OSHA and EPA and CDC KNOW THE HEALTH DANGERS!

Read exerpts from OSHA’s HAZWOPER Traing Manual below.

ALL BEACHES along the Gulf of Mexico should be CLOSED.

IF —- IF  the OSHA, EPA and CDC HAZMAT standards for WEATHERED CRUDE OIL

airborne DISPERSANTS and COREXIT.

TOURISTS are at GREAT HEALTH RISK for cancer of the skin, kidney and liver.

BP WORKERS are NOT ALLOWED to wear the OSHA REQUIRED HAZMAT GEAR. Why?

OSHA, EPA and CDC are NOT implementing their OWN STANDARDS.

EPA is NOT monitoring the AIR QUALITY on the COAST of ALABAMA.

Although their “Emergency Response” states DAILY testing – of the FOUR [really]

Stationary Air Quality Control Devices the closest is in Pensacola, FL.

Who made the DECISION NOT to follow OSHA – EPA & CDC STANDARDS in ALABAMA?

BP will NOT ALLOW the beach workers to PROTECT themselves from VOC’s [Volitile Organic Compounds]

because of TOURISM. 

Following is directly from the OSHA HAZWOPER training manual for BP clean up workers:

 

H E A L T H   R I S K S   O F  WEATHERED  CRUDE  OIL   p28

potential dermatitis from SKINcontact that are PUT  INTO  THE  AIR

during cleanup operations can be irritating to eyes, nose, throat & lungs

NOTE:  Even if AIR SAMPLING shows NO DETECTABLE LEVELS or

VERY LOW LEVELS of VOC’s [VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS]

There STILLmay be a health danger present.

C O N T A C T   A N D  A B S O R P T I O N  p55

some chemicals can cause irritation or RASHES [dermatitis] if they TOUCH YOUR SKIN

chemicals can be ABSORBEDand go INTO THE BLOOD STREAM

Sometimes without ANY VISIBLEdamage to your skin [rash]

if the chemicals get INSIDE YOUR BODYthey may be able to PASS

throughto your BLOOD STEAMand be carried TO OTHER ORGANS in your body

I N H A L A T I O N   p56

When AIRBORNEchemicals enter your LUNGS

they can be ABSORBEDin your BLOOD STREAM

GASES AND VAPORS CAN REACH THE DEEP LUNGS

“particle and droplet size effects where the chemical settles in the respiratory track

where the chemical settles in the respiratory tract influences symptoms and diseases”

I N G E S T I O N    p57

chemical is SWALLOWED through YOUR MOUTH ABSORBED through the DIGESTIVE TRACT

Chemicals can be caught in mucus and swallowed then absorbed in the digestive tract

Chemicals in the AIR can SETTLEon FOOD or DRINKand be SWALLOWED.

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT PROTECTION  [PPE]  p59

Level D modified clothingis the most common –

TYVEK PANTS, boots, disposable gloves, life jackets and duct tape.

TYVEK pants are typically tied off at the waist.

Boots are duct taped to pants in order to form a seal.

NOTE: More conventional hazmat gear WILL LIKELY NOT BE USED.

RARELY, respirators ranging from an N-95

to a Powered Air Purifying Respirator [PAPR] will be used.

[ Wonder who made this decision - NOT to FOLLOW the standard WRITTEN ABOVE,

this manual was written AFTER the DISASTER on April 20, 2010].

S U M M A R Y  p101

THE OIL AND HAZARDOUS MATERIALS

ASSOCIATED WITH THE CLEAN UP

CAN BE HAZARDOUS TO HUMAN HEALTH.

We are evacuating our home in Foley, AL – before we leave, I am determined to share this truth and close the beaches and have OSHA, EPA and CDC follow their OWN STANDARDS and REQUIRE the BP WORKERS to WEAR HAZMAT GEAR along the Gulf of Mexico. The story has been filmed by independent international crews, local national stations….BUT NO ONE HAS PROVED using their OWN LAWS….that OSHA and EPA and CDC are NOT protecting us….why?

      This is the worst “in your face” tragedy since EPA told the 9/11 responders that the air is safe. Here in Florida some of us are very worried for you all, and for us as well. We are working on it.

      YES, the effect of “low”quantities” IS dangerous: it is comparable to the effects of homeopathic medicine. AND it is effective for (all) CHEMICAL and RADIOACTIVE substances.

      (and most times that is either underestimated or quietly hidden, for example by involved industries such as Siemens, GeneralElectric, Areva etc.etc.)

      for more about radioactive danger in “UNDER”critical” doses and concentrations, see
