Plymouth, MI, November 25, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- On January 9, 2008, the EPA accepted a new standard known as the HAPs 6H rule to reduce the public’s health exposure to Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs). The agency’s main objective is to significantly lessen the amount of HAPs released into the environment during paint stripping or surface coating operations.
During such work practices, the most dangerous chemicals, namely, methylene chloride (MeCl), cadmium, chromium, lead, manganese and nickel compounds, represent significant risk to employee health if proper engineering and administrative controls are not in place.
Because the requirements are extensive, the EPA is allowing existing facilities until January 11, 2011 to reach compliance.
At EXEL North America, they have gathered information about the 6H Paint Rule and would like to share it with you. For more information and a free copy of this document, please visit them at:
