Recorded at AIHce 2015
Session Moderator: S. Derman, Medishare Environmental Health & Safety Services, Cupertino, CA Occupational exposure limits (OELs) have been established for airborne workplace chemicals by various authoritative global organizations for over 60 years. Chemicals are being introduced into commerce at a rate which significantly outpaces the development of authoritative OELs. Occupational exposure banding uses available toxicological data to create a range of concentrations or an Occupational Exposure Band (OEB), to control chemical exposures. Occupational exposure banding can be performed by in-house industrial hygienists and toxicologists to provide rapid, useful processes that will be useful for dealing with the myriad of unregulated chemicals in commerce. This session will provide an overview of various approaches including the NIOSH OEB decision process, the approach recently published in the new AIHA® publication, A Strategy for Assessing and Managing Occupational Exposures, 4th edition, and new approaches for both small and big businesses.
