RELIABLE DETECTION TECHNOLOGY

Elizabeth Crosby

Georgia Tech researchers wore the
ChemDAQ SafeCide Portable Air Monitor, ATI
D16 PortaSens III Portable Gas Leak Detector
and Interscan 4000 Series Compact Portable
Analyzer simultaneously to test peracetic acid
levels in poultry plants. Bob Hendry, Georgia Tech
"What we are trying to really say is that these
technologies may work in other environments but in environments where there's potential for exposure to chlorine,
or high humidity, they may not be as accurate," Houlroyd
said. "It's frustrating from both the perspective of the worker
- because there are (U.S. Department of Agriculture)
inspectors that are reporting that they are experiencing
symptoms - but then it's also frustrating for an employee at
a poultry plant that's trying to do the right thing and doesn't
know what is their baseline, and what to shoot for, and if the
measurements they are taking are accurate."

The potential next steps
Houlroyd said she isn't presently working on any more
studies on PAA. Nevertheless, USPOULTRY remains
committed to funding studies of the use of the substance,
Bredwell said in Nashville. Houlroyd said pausing on
further studies is necessary for now because NIOSH is
conducting its own study of the chemical.

"NIOSH is studying PAA and is planning studies in order
to gain a better understanding of exposures in the workplace
and how to reduce them," Dunn said in a statement. "This
work is still in its preliminary stages, so we are not able to
provide more information about that work at this time."
In the past, NIOSH published three studies on PAA
exposure. Two of which, published in 2014 and 2015,
respectively, focused on the assessment and evaluation of
PAA exposure among federal poultry inspectors.
Dunn did not comment on what role NIOSH's work would
play in any potential OSHA-mandated regulation of the use of
the chemical. The poultry industry is presently working with
OSHA on PAA as well as other key processing related topics.
Houlroyd did say the process for OSHA to set a new
limit is lengthy and requires much research as well as
proof that any regulation would not harm the financial
viability of the industry itself in addition to protecting
worker health.
