Consider that an employee within a company-sponsored (OSHA required) medical monitoring program for your industry has just had an annual work physical and now reports to have pulmonary stress, hearing damage, and elevated blood lead (Pb) concentrations that were not previously reported on the employeeâ€™s pre-employment exam. As a result, the human resources manager has asked you to help determine what work-related variables may have contributed to the employeeâ€™s impacted health.

How would you attempt to delineate the air quality impacts from the employeeâ€™s work system and home?
