Recorded at IOHA 2018
To be accepted by authorities and other stakeholders like the occupational hygiene community the underpinning of the underlying exposure models with sound data became increasingly important. At the previous 7th CB conference the results of the Eteam study on the validation of lower tier exposure tools used for REACH were presented. Since then several new studies, also on higher tier exposure tools have been published or are underway. But not only the exposure part of the tools was studied. Due to increasing pressure on substitution of CMR(S) chemicals, the validation of different hazard or occupational exposure banding schemes were questioned and the first studies appeared.
Last but not least it has been shown that just 'offering' a control banding tool, without providing active support, does not automatically result in its use by SMEs, and even less in a 'proper' use. For successful implementation of CB and beyond…. strategies, other aspects than technical reliability model issues need to be covered as well.
