Each group will be required to prepare a seminar reviewing evidence of harm which results
from exposure to a hazardous chemical. After the groups have been finalized on 16 January
2017, each group will be allocated a hazardous substance as their topic for investigation.
The group is required to research the relationship between exposure to the chemical (dose)
and harm. You will need to research both human and animal studies to develop a view of the dose-effect and dose-response relationships. The research studies should be reviewed to try to ascertain the threshold of harm for that chemical. You must then compare the determined threshold of harm with the Occupational Exposure Limit (OEL) that applies for that chemical in Singapore and Australia. If there is a difference between the threshold that emerges from the review of the research studies and the quoted OEL, possible reasons for the discrepancy should be discussed.
