ACGIH American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists;an organization of professional personnel in governmentalagencies or educational institutions engaged in occupationalsafety and health programs.
ACGIH develops and publishes recommendedoccupational exposure limits (see TLV) for hundreds ofchemical substances and physical agents.G17Action Tracking A method of logging progress when implementing a task orset of tasks.G82Activation EnergyActivation EnergyConstant Eain the exponential part of the Arrhenius equationassociated with the minimum energy difference between thereactants and an activated complex, which has a structureintermediate to those of the reactants and the products(transition state) or with the minimum collision energybetween molecules that is required to enable a reaction.The constant
in the exponential part of theArrhenius equation, associated with the minimumenergy difference between the reactants and anactivated complex (transition state), which has astructure intermediate to those of the reactants andthe products, or with the minimum collision energybetween molecules that is required to enable areaction to occur. It is a constant that defines theeffect of temperature on reaction rate.CCPS 1995a, Barton and Rogers 1997
G35G81Active Equipment Denotes physical motion or activity in the performance of theequipment's function, as with rotating machinery.G7Active System A system in which failures are immediately evident duringnormal operation.G24
An adverse effect on a human or animal body, with severesymptoms developing rapidly and coming quickly to a crisis.See also, "Chronic".
How much and how long one is exposed to achemical is the critical factor to how adverse the healtheffects will be.G17
A short-term or rare exposure to a toxic agent in a singleepisode that is unlikely to recur.G3
