Title: Draft NIOSH Occupational Exposure Banding Process: Guidance for the Evaluation of Chemical Hazards
Subject: Documentation of the process of occupational exposure banding to characterize workplace chemical hazards for risk management.
Purpose: The rate at which new chemicals are being introduced into commerce significantly outpaces occupational exposure limit (OEL) development, creating a need for guidance on thousands of chemicals that lack reliable exposure limits. The draft NIOSH occupational exposure banding document provides a validated, consistent, and documented approach to characterizing chemical hazards so timely and well-informed risk management decisions can be made for chemicals lacking OELs.
Timing of Review: March ‰?? May 2017
