An example of a scenario evaluation is presented in Table 1.

Hydraulic fracturing wells have a very short life compared to conventional wells. For example, a well in the Bakken region straddling Montana and North Dakota may start out producing 1,000 barrels a day then decline to 280 barrels at the beginning of year two. By year three, more than half of the reserves will be depleted. Therefore, to generate revenue, producers need to constantly drill new wells. In this sense, hydraulic fracturing wells are more like gold or silver mines than conventional oil production.[] The recent drop in oil prices has caused a series of bankruptcies and closures across the oil industries. Although there was a reduction in the number of rigs from about 1,600 to 800,[] hydraulic fracturing still accounted for 4.6 million barrels a day out of a total of 9.4 million barrels or 49 percent of total oil produced in February 2015. Hydraulic fracturing also accounted for 54 percent of natural gas output.

Eye effects. Injury to the eye ranges from reddening of the outer layer (swimming-pool redness) to cataract formation of the cornea to damage to the iris (coloured part of the eye). Eye irritation tests are conducted when it is believed serious injury will not occur. Many of the mechanisms causing skin corrosion can also cause injury to the eyes. Materials corrosive to the skin, like strong acids (pH less than 2) and alkali (pH greater than 11.5), are not tested in the eyes of animals because most will cause corrosion and blindness due to a mechanism similar to that which causes skin corrosion. In addition, surface active agents like detergents and surfactants can cause eye injury ranging from irritation to corrosion. A group of materials that requires caution is the positively charged (cationic) surfactants, which can cause burns, permanent opacity of the cornea and vascularization (formation of blood vessels). Another chemical, dinitrophenol, has a specific effect of cataract formation. This appears to be related to concentration of this chemical in the eye, which is an example of pharmacokinetic distributional specificity.

(1957) The gastric secretion of drugs -- a pH partition hypothesis.

It has been noted, for example, that if a toxic effect occurs in only 1% of the test animals, the effect will be entirely missed 37% of the time if only 100 animals are used in each test (Friedman, 1969).

It was not necessary for OSHA to distinguish between controls necessary to achieve the preceding PEL and those necessary to achieve the new PEL in order to demonstrate the technological feasibility of achieving a PEL of 50 μg/m3. Such a distinction would have been difficult because, from a baseline of uncontrolled exposures, the controls necessary to meet the preceding and new PELs are difficult to distinguish. For example, if there are two different controls necessary to fully meet the new PEL, then it is logically possible that two different establishments may achieve an exposure level at or below the preceding PEL in different ways. One establishment may have excellent housekeeping but poorly maintained LEV. Another may have well maintained LEV but poor housekeeping. For individual cases, there is not a simple demarcation of which controls of the total set of controls are necessary to achieve the new PEL when only the exposure level and not the controls already in place are known. Nor, as discussed above, is it the case that a control, once installed, will always provide identical protection. Two otherwise equal facilities may have the same installed controls but different exposure levels because of the quality of the maintenance of the system.

Typical examples of quantal effects are death or occurrence of a tumoura.

After additional thought and discussion about this issue with several construction tradespeople, we . . . concluded that useful life is a function of both how often the tool and controls are used, but also how long they sit in the construction worker's truck and get bounced around going from job site to job site (even when they are not used), and how often they are taken out of the truck and returned to the truck (even when they are only set up then taken down at the job site but not actually used). Thus useful life will increase if a tool sits idle for some percentage of the time when it is available, but useful life will not increase to the same proportional extent as the decrease in usage. We assumed in the example in workbook Tab # X2B that using the tool and equipment 1/4 as often will double its useful life (Document ID 4217, p 89).

OSHA also fails to account for the clean-up costs associated with the natural by-products from Table 1's required engineering controls. For example, many of the engineering controls require the use of wet methods or water delivery systems. [ ] Employers will incur costs from removing (from the clean-up process itself and lost time) excess water to prevent ice or mold from developing. Yet these costs go unaccounted for in the PEA (Document ID 2350, pp. 6-7).
