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

Primary Disciplines or Expertise Needed for Review: Exposure assessment, toxicology, industrial hygiene

Type of Review: Individual

Number of Reviewers: 5
