OSHA air quality is the proper standard to compare indoor air quality test methods, EPA PM 2.5 or vague RSP testing applies only to outdoor airAs I've stated many times, indoor air quality is always worse than outdoor air quality.....so for smoking ban activists to impose EPA air quality standards (PM 2.5 or RSP (respirable suspended particles)) which only apply to outdoor air is not only unattainable, but fraudulent.
We need to insist that OSHA permissible exposure limits, which regulates indoor workplace air quality, is the standard by which any indoor air quality testing is compared......it's how we conduct air quality testing in any other workplace setting. As an indoor air quality engineer, no customer has ever come to me saying the EPA measured their interior plant air, and they're in violation of PM 2.5, or exceeds recommended RSP's......OSHA is the governing authority on indoor air quality, not the EPA.
Air quality test results of secondhand smoke by Johns Hopkins University, the American Cancer Society, a Minnesota Environmental Health Department, and various researchers whose testing and report was peer reviewed and published in the esteemed British Medical Journal......prove that secondhand smoke is 2.6 - 25,000 times SAFER than occupational (OSHA) workplace regulations:
All nullify the argument that secondhand smoke is a workplace "health hazard".
Conversely, the effects of unnecessary, pharmaceutical nicotine funded, smoking ban laws have been profoundly detrimental:
Additionally, a World Health Organization (WHO) study, and analysis of former Surgeon General Carmona's "report" indicate that exaggerations and lies about secondhand smoke was the real pandemic of SHS.
