OSHA Launches Chemical Substitution Toolkit, Updated Occupational Exposure Limits Table
As part of the ongoing effort to protect workers from exposure to hazardous chemicals, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will host a press conference on Oct. 24 to announce the launch of two web-based resources.
OSHA has created a toolkit that assists employers and workers in identifying and substituting safer chemicals to use in place of more hazardous ones. In addition, OSHA has developed an annotated occupational exposure limits table that provides accurate and up-to-date chemical information to employers who want to voluntarily adopt newer, more protective workplace exposure limits for chemicals covered by outdated OSHA exposure standards.
