SPOTLIGHT INDUSTRY – PHARMACEUTICALS

During the manufacturing, handling, and packaging of pharmaceuticals, workers may be exposed to a range of chemicals, including active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), chemical intermediates, cleaning and disinfecting agents, and biological agents. Protecting the safety and health of pharmaceutical workers from exposures to such a wide range of potential hazards relies on a comprehensive understanding of the work environment and work processes, in addition to the nature of the specific hazards of interest.

SPOTLIGHT SERVICES – HAZARD BANDING AND OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS [OELs]

The landscape of published OELs is complex, in part, because they are derived by multiple regulatory agencies, research groups, and trade groups/associations, often using different methods. Cardno ChemRisk has an extensive and robust OEL and hazard banding program that can provide a systematic, customizable, evidence-integrated approach that is based on the latest knowledge and research in the field.
