In 2017-2018, NIOSH developed a Current Intelligence Bulletin entitled 'The NIOSH Occupational Exposure Banding Process: Guidance for the Evaluation of Chemical Hazards'. This new guidance addresses an important need for a chemical hazard assessment for workplace chemicals without occupational exposure limits (OELs). Specifically, the occupational exposure banding process is a method for assigning chemicals into specific categories called Occupational Exposure Bands (OEBs). These bands are assigned based on a chemical's toxicological potency and the adverse health effects associated with exposure. OEBs range from band A to band E, with each band corresponding to a range of exposure concentrations that is expected to protect worker health. Given the reality that the rate at which chemicals are introduced into commerce outpaces the development of authoritative OELs, occupational exposure banding provides a practical approach for chemical assessment needed for risk management decisions. Details about the process and use of the e-Tool will provide the audience with practical guidance for assessing chemical hazards in the workplace. Efforts to disseminate the guidance and assess its utility through stakeholder engagement in public review and feedback will also be described.
