Research Services and Litigation Support
OEHS2 conducts literature searches on a wide variety of environmental health and safety topics and summarizes the information for corporate clients and defense/plaintiff attorneys. OEHS2 has access to one of the world's largest collections of books and journals and is particularly adept at researching historical issues. Literature searches were conducted recently to answer the following questions:
OEHS2 also writes expert reports on industrial hygiene and safety related issues in support of litigation and testifies in court. Reports were written recently that determined the adequacy of a chemical manufacturer's precautionary label and material safety data sheet, estimated an employee's exposure while cleaning up a chemical spill, described the foundry industry's knowledge of the hazards associated with silica exposure from 1930 to 2000 and estimated a worker's cumulative exposure to asbestos. Tom Ouimet recently testified in a products liability case that was listed in the top one hundred verdicts of 2007 (number 12). You can read a discription of the case here.
To estimate past employee exposures while performing certain tasks, or an employee exposure when using a new alternative work practice, OEHS2 designs and conducts task simulations. Task simulations have been created to estimate worker exposures to asbestos when intruding on plaster walls containing less than one percent asbestos, cutting of asbestos containing wire, removing lead paint, working with a hazardous chemical on a laboratory bench, and cleaning up a hazardous material spill.
