Wireless Broadband: Health & Safety Information

The WLAN Association (WLANA), a non-profit educational trade association, has published a research paper entitled “Do Wireless LAN’s Pose a Health Risk to the Consumer?”. The research paper concludes: “The interpretation of over four decades of research in this area has led to a scientific consensus on the safety of exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic fields. This consensus is reflected in the recommendations and standards developed by expert committees such as NCRP Scientific Committee 53, IEEE Standards Coordinating Committee 28, IRPA/INIRC and NRPB. Manufacturers of Wireless Networking products design their products to operate within the guidelines of these standards and recommendations and, therefore, are considered safe.” 4

PREPARATION OF SAFETY DATA SHEETS FOR HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS

PREPARATION OF SAFETY DATA SHEETS FOR HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS

Any recommendation made by the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) in a relevant NICNAS assessment report relating to the information required in an SDS should be reviewed and considered for inclusion. Information to protect the health and safety of persons in the workplace may be included on the SDS for chemicals that do not meet the GHS classification criteria, for example some miscellaneous dangerous goods (identified in the ADG Code). For example, the health and safety information for dry ice could include recommendations under Section 7 – Handling and Storage to use gloves while handling the hazardous chemical, instructions not to use it in enclosed spaces and to ensure that there is adequate ventilation.

effects. It is the classification of a hazardous chemical that determines what information is communicated on the label and the Safety Data Sheet (SDS - previously known as Material Safety Data Sheet). The Work Health and Safety (WHS) Regulations introduce a new system of chemical classification and hazard communication on labels and Safety Data Sheets, based on the Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS). This will replace the classification and hazard communication systems for workplace hazardous substances and dangerous goods. It will not replace requirements for dangerous goods transport.

Communication of Health and Safety Policy and Information

Communication of Health and Safety Policy and Information

Education Queensland will often require contractors to perform various works at departmental workplaces. For this reason it is important that management understands the workplace health and safety implications of having contractors at departmental workplaces, particularly schools, so it can ensure that the workplace remains a safe and healthy place. Essentially, contractors are responsible for ensuring that the work they do does not affect the health and safety of themselves or others in any way. It is important for managers, however, to be aware of whether contractors are complying with their obligations, and to ensure that staff, students and others comply with necessary health and safety requirements while the work is being performed.

Preparation of Safety Data Sheets for Hazardous Chemicals

Preparation of Safety Data Sheets for Hazardous Chemicals

The SDS should also contain information relevant to environmental effects to meet other laws. 2.1 What information is needed in an SDS? The language used in an SDS should be simple, clear and precise, avoiding jargon, acronyms and abbreviations. Vague and misleading expressions should not be used. Phrases such as “may be dangerous”, “no health effects”, “safe under most conditions of use” and “harmless” are also not recommended. It may be that information on certain properties is of no significance or that it is technically impossible to provide detailed information, and if so, the reasons for this should be clearly stated under each heading. If it is stated that a particular hazard does not exist, the safety data sheet should clearly differentiate between cases where no information is available to the classifier and cases where negative test results are available.

PROCESS SAFETY MANAGEMENT OF HIGHLY HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS

PROCESS SAFETY MANAGEMENT OF HIGHLY HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS

SAFETY MANAGEMENT H 1910.119 H-269 Appendix C The applicable codes and standards provide criteria for external inspections for such items as foundation and supports, anchor bolts, concrete or steel supports, guy wires, nozzles and sprinklers, pipe hangers, grounding connections, protective coatings and insulation, and external metal surfaces of piping and vessels, etc. These codes and standards also provide information on methodologies for internal inspection, and a frequency formula based on the corrosion rate of the materials of construction. Also, erosion both internal and external needs to be considered along with corrosion effects for piping and valves. Where the corrosion rate is not known, a maximum inspection frequency is recommended, and methods of developing the corrosion rate are available in the codes. Internal inspections need to cover items such as vessel shell, bottom and head; metallic linings; nonmetallic linings; thickness measurements for vessels and piping; inspection for erosion, corrosion, cracking and bulges; internal equipment like trays, baffles, sensors and screens for erosion, corrosion or cracking and other deficien- cies. Some of these inspections may be performed by state or local government inspec- tors under state and local statutes. However, each employer needs to develop proce- dures to ensure that tests and inspections are conducted properly and that consistency is maintained even where different employees may be involved. Appropriate training is to be provided to maintenance personnel to ensure that they understand the preventive maintenance program procedures, safe practices, and the proper use and application of special equipment or unique tools that may be required. This training is part of the over- all training program called for in the standard.

PROCESS SAFETY MANAGEMENT OF HIGHLY HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS

PROCESS SAFETY MANAGEMENT OF HIGHLY HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS

Dispersing storage into locations where a release in one location will not cause a release in another location is a practical method to also reduce the risk or potential for catastrophic incidents. 2. Employee Involvement in Process Safety Management. Section 304 of the Clean Air Act Amendments states that employers are to consult with their employees and their representatives regarding the employers’ efforts in the development and implementation of the process safety management program elements and hazard assessments. Section 304 also requires employers to train and educate their employees and to inform affected employees of the findings from incident investigations required by the process safety management program. Many employers, under their safety and health programs, have already established means and methods to keep employees and their representatives informed about relevant safety and health issues and employers may be able to adapt these practices and procedures to meet their obligations under this standard. Employers who have not implemented an occupational safety and health program may wish to form a safety and health committee of employees and management representatives to help the employer meet the obligations specified by this standard. These committees can become a significant ally in helping the employer to implement and maintain an effective process safety management program for all employees.

EPA approved the CFEMS manual with just two comments. More importantly, project success quickly became evident when the client saw a greater than 50 percent reduction in NPDES violations in less than 9 months. In addition, CH2M supported the client with its environmental compliance information management system in 2009. The requirements of the information management system were driven by a Consent Decree, which created tight deadlines, rigid parameters, and a complex configuration. The Enviance system from inception to go‐live was complete in 5 months, which included full configuration and laboratory integration. Key features of the Enviance configuration included use of handheld tablets for field data collection; full integration with automated uploads by over two dozen laboratories using Enviance’s auto‐bulk load tool, EIFL (Enviance Integrated Framework Language) and associated coding; and programming of permit limits, tracking, and notifications. In addition, CH2M designed and implemented a solution to electronically facilitate the client’s compliance management business processes, including tasks or workflows and forms for outfall inspections, internal and third‐party auditing and corrective actions, and executive rollups on compliance task completion status.

Comprehensive Safety Evaluation of the Chemicals with Human and Environmental Relevance

Comprehensive Safety Evaluation of the Chemicals with Human and Environmental Relevance

* Correspondence: matteo.floris@gmail.com § These authors contributed equally to this work Abstract. Reducing the levels of toxic chemicals that cause adverse health and environmental impacts is a challenge for the international community. There is a need of a global strategy. Indeed, too often the problems associated to the exposure of chemical substances is recognized a posteriori, in the presence of consequences already observed. The prediction of the likely effects of chemical exposure on human health is based on classical tests with animals, which are time and money consuming, may deviate from an accurate prediction towards humans, and arises ethical concerns. Regulations are now considering the adoption of in silico (or computational) methods, which can be used for prioritizing substances according to the probability to be toxic for the biosphere. Several initiatives have prioritized chemicals, typically based according to some criteria, such as chemicals which may be endocrine disruptors, or persistent, bioaccumulative, or toxic (PBT). However, these initiatives focused on a certain range of adverse properties, and covered a certain number of substances only.

An Evidence-Based Approach to Reviewing the Science on the Safety of Chemicals in Foods

An Evidence-Based Approach to Reviewing the Science on the Safety of Chemicals in Foods

An Evidence-Based Approach to Reviewing the Science on the Safety of Chemicals in Foods In considering the safety of chemicals added to foods, or present in foods due to environmental circumstances, we wish to answer the question, “Is there a causal relationship between dietary exposure to the chemical and adverse health effects in humans?”. There is often insufficient or inadequate evidence to make a definitive judgement on this and we are often confronted with an array of diverse and often conflicting scientific information on which to assess the likelihood of a causal relationship. Each piece of information (a single study employing a particular study design) can be viewed as ‘evidence’ and, as with a court of law, the body of available evidence must be sorted and assessed to arrive at a sound judgement.
