Consider the following scenario

You are the safety
and occupational health professional for your city’s health department. You
received a call from a major food-distribution warehouse about some employees
who are complaining of dizziness and feeling sick. The scene is a very large
warehouse; a significant portion is refrigerated. The illnesses are being
reported from a refrigerated section (about 40 degrees F), where workers are
blister packing food products on a production line. The warehouse has 20
loading docks, two railroad car lines that end directly inside the warehouse
(in close proximity to the production area), a dozen or so gas powered
forklifts, and no sensors or environmental monitors of any kind except those
associated with the refrigeration systems. The warehouse manager is
cooperative, but he points out that he is in the middle of contract
negotiations with the union. He is also very proud of the fact that they have
special seals on the loading dock doors and throughout the warehouse to keep
the cold in and the heat out. You
cannot identify any discernible odors other than the exhaust from the forklifts
when they move by you. There are four women waiting for you in the break room
complaining of dizziness and lightheadedness. They are all comparing and
complaining about their symptoms. There are 14 employees who work in this area
of the warehouse: 12 women and 2 men.


Based on the given scenario, develop a plan of action that
includes how you would conduct the investigation, how you would identify
possible sources of the problem, and your opinion on the likely source. Discuss the standards applicable to possible sources.
Include several recommendations you would make to the manager to help solve the
problem based on your research into documented best practices for similar
situations. Note: You may make
assumptions about the scenario in order to propose solutions (be certain to
state your assumptions clearly).

Your Case Study must be four to six pages in length, double
spaced. All sources used, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material
must have accompanying citations.
