Information Profiles on Potential Occupational Hazards.


PB83101055

Publication Date 1978
Page Count 174
Abstract The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health prepares criteria documents for recommended occupational standards for chemical and physical agents considered to be potential hazards in the workplace. The criteria document is prepared following an extensive and critical evaluation of all known and relevant information on biologic, chemical, and physical effects, and engineering/control technology. Standards may include an exposure level, work practices, control procedures, and medical surveillance. In many cases, research may be required to develop data or methodology necessary for promulgation of an effective and enforceable standard, eg, toxicologic research or sampling/analytic technique. To allow for such research, the subjects are chosen well in advance of actual preparation of the document. Subjects selected from those profiles will become priorities mainly for FY 82 criteria documents. These profiles are intended only to provide a general overview of the subject area.
