Chemical classification and labelling systems may be roughly similar from one country to another but there are significant differences too. In order to harmonize various chemical classification systems and ultimately provide consistent chemical hazard communication tools worldwide, the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) was endorsed by the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). Several countries, including Japan, Taiwan, Korea and Malaysia, are now in the process of implementing GHS. It is essential to ascertain the comprehensibility of chemical hazard communication tools that are described in the GHS documents, namely the chemical labels and Safety Data Sheets (SDS). Comprehensibility Testing (CT) was carried out with a mixed group of industrial workers in Malaysia (n=150) and factors that influence the comprehensibility were analysed using one-way ANOVA. The ability of the respondents to retrieve information from the SDS was also tested in this study. The findings show that almost all the GHS pictograms meet the ISO comprehension criteria and it is concluded that the underlying core elements that enhance comprehension of GHS pictograms and which are also essential in developing competent persons in the use of SDS are training and education.  (+info)

Red mud is a by-product of alumina production. Little is known about the long-term fate of red mud constituents in fresh waters or of the processes regulating recovery of fresh waters following pollution control. In 1983, red mud leachate was diverted away from Kinghorn Loch, UK, after many years of polluting this shallow and monomictic lake. We hypothesised that the redox-sensitive constituents of red mud leachate, phosphorus (P), arsenic (As) and vanadium (V), would persist in the Kinghorn Loch for many years following pollution control as a result of cycling between the lake bed sediment and the overlying water column. To test this hypothesis, we conducted a 12-month field campaign in Kinghorn Loch between May 2012 and April 2013 to quantify the seasonal cycling of P, As, and V in relation to environmental conditions (e.g., dissolved oxygen (DO) concentration, pH, redox chemistry and temperature) in the lake surface and bottom waters. To confirm the mechanisms for P, As and V release, a ...
Disasters serve as shocks and precipitate unanticipated disturbances to the health care system. Public health surveillance is generally focused on monitoring latent health and environmental exposure effects, rather than health system performance in response to these local shocks. The following intervention study sought to determine the long-term effects of the 2005 chlorine spill in Graniteville, South Carolina on primary care access for vulnerable populations. We used an interrupted time-series approach to model monthly visits for Ambulatory Care Sensitive Conditions, an indicator of unmet primary care need, to quantify the impact of the disaster on unmet primary care need in Medicaid beneficiaries. The results showed Medicaid beneficiaries in the directly impacted service area experienced improved access to primary care in the 24 months post-disaster. We provide evidence that a health system serving the medically underserved can prove resilient and display improved adaptive capacity under adverse

The South Korean Coast Guard told Reuters that it had to stay three miles from the tanker.. Since the crash, the Sanchi has been billowing thick plumes of black smoke into the air. Unless the fire can be brought under control, officials worry that the ship might explode and sink, releasing its 1 million barrels of oil into the water.. The resulting spill would be about three times as big as the Exxon Valdez spill of 1989, one of the worst environmental disasters in history. It would double what the Prestige oil tanker released when it sank off the coast of Spain in 2002. That accident damaged beaches in France, Spain and Portugal and led to the closure of one of Spains richest fishing areas.. Some of the worst spills in history have been even bigger. When the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig exploded off the southern coast of the United States in 2010, it spilled about 210 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. In 1979, the Atlantic Empress and the Aegean Captain collided, resulting in a ...
While biodegradation of chemically dispersed oil has been well documented, only a few studies have focused on the degradation of the dispersant compounds themselves. The objective of this study was to determine the biodegradation of dispersant surfactants in cold seawater, relevant for deep sea or Arctic conditions. Biotransformation of the surfactants dioctyl-sodium sulfosuccinate (DOSS), Tween 80, Tween 85, and α/β-ethylhexylsulfosuccinate (EHSS, expected DOSS hydrolysis product) in the commercial dispersants Corexit 9500, Dasic Slickgone NS and Finasol OSR52 were determined. The biotransformation studies of the surfactants were performed in natural seawater at 5 °C over a period of 54 days without oil present. The surfactants were tested at concentrations of 1, 5, and 50 mg/L, the lower concentration being as close as possible to expected field concentrations. Experiments with dispersants concentrations of 1 mg/L resulted in rapid biotransformation of Tween 80 and Tween 85, with depletion ...

Your questions and our responses are as follow:. Question 1:. Define target organs.. Answer:. As defined in Casarett and Doulle Toxicology, the Basic Science of Poisons, "Most chemicals that produce systemic toxicity do not cause a similar degree of toxicity in all organs but usually produce the major toxicity to one or two organs. These are referred to as target organs of toxicity for that chemical." Appendix A of the Hazard Communication Standard provides a target organ categorization of effects chemicals which have been found to cause such effects. The examples given are presented to illustrate the range and diversity of effects and hazards but are not intended to be all-inclusive.. Question 2:. After defining same, please advise where a manufacturer can obtain a list of target organs versus hazardous chemicals.. Answer:. As stated in ...
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recently developed a process to apply the occupational exposure banding process to a broad spectrum of occupational settings. These bands are assigned based on a chemicals potency and the negative health outcomes associated with exposure to the chemical. The output of this process is an occupational exposure band, which corresponds to a range of exposure concentrations that is expected to be protective to worker health. The new NIOSH occupational exposure banding process uses available, but often limited, toxicological data to determine a potential range of chemical exposure levels that can be used as targets for exposure controls to reduce risk among workers. Comments are being sought from individuals including scientists and representatives from various government agencies, industry, labor, and other stakeholders, and also the public, specifically regarding any errors of fact, unsubstantiated claims, evidence of careless ...

However, it is generally accepted that for most chemicals indirect phototransformation in air is much faster than direct phototransformation (ECETOC, 1983; OECD, 1987). g. , 1977). The importance of this process, however, has been disputed, firstly because for most compounds present in the atmosphere only a very small fraction of the total is associated with solid particles (ECETOC, 1983) and, secondly, because the relevance of the kind of particles used during testing, namely silica gel or sand, to the large variety of particles that exist in the atmosphere is not clear (ECETOC, 1983; Parlar, 1986). A disadvantage of these simple models is that they may not be applicable to complicated source geometries. A further developinent is represented by the models such as the Dutch National Model and Extended Model in which weather statistics are included. They are used to predict the frequency of occurrence of certain concentrations at ground level. Thus, rather than a worst-case assessment these ...

Sailors team assembled the nanofibers into repeating structures called photonic crystals that reflect specific wavelengths, or colors, of light. The wing scales of the Morpho butterfly, which give the insect its brilliant iridescent coloration, are natural examples of this kind of structure.. The sensors are an iridescent color too, rather than black like ordinary carbon. That color changes when the fibers absorb toxins - a visible indication of their capacity for absorbing additional chemicals.. The agency that certifies respirators in the U.S., the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, has long sought such a sensor but the design requirements for a tiny, sensitive, inexpensive device that requires little power, have proved difficult to meet.. The materials that the team fabricated are very thin - less than half the width of a human hair. Sailors group has previously placed similar photonic sensors on the tips of optical fibers less than a millimeter across and shown that they ...

Mobility of 232Th and 210Po in red mud.. Science.gov (United States). Hegedűs, Miklós; Tóth-Bodrogi, Edit; Jónás, Jácint; Somlai, János; Kovács, Tibor. 2018-04-01. The valorization of industrial by-products such as red mud became a tempting opportunity, but the understanding of the risks involved is required for the safe utilization of these products. One of the risks involved are the elevated levels of radionuclides (in the 100-1300 Bq/kg range for both the 238 U and 232 Th decay chains, but usually lower than 1000 Bq/kg, which is the recommended limit for excemption or clearance according to the EU BSS released in 2013) in red mud that can affect human health. There is no satisfactory answer for the utilization of red mud; the main current solution is still almost exclusively disposal into a landfill. For the safe utilization and deposition of red mud, it is important to be able to assess the leaching behaviour of radionuclides. Because there is no commonly accepted measurement ...

Birmingham councils child protection services have been rated inadequate by Ofsted, following an unannounced inspection.. The rating follows a disappointing inspection history for the troubled department, which was issued with a government improvement notice in February 2009 - following a number of high profile child deaths - and September 2010.. Despite progress in 2011, all four inspections following the first improvement notice uncovered concerns about the quality of the authoritys practice in protecting children. Last month, inspectors found too many children were at risk of harm because the authority had failed, on too many occasions, to carry out prompt, robust assessments. The vast majority of children in need known to the department were found to have no child in need plan.. Progress too slow. Although inspectors noted improvements, they found progress on a number of key issues had been too slow. These include the high rates of re-referrals, that children subject to child ...

By Schumacher, Paul J Kuchler, Deborah D I. INTRODUCTION Many small manufacturing clients falsely assume that major catastrophic events happen to industrial giants. To the contrary, many of the catastrophic chemical accidents occur at relatively small facilities. Perhaps due to this misconception, or for other unknown reasons, the level of knowledge and preparation varies from client to client and is typically dependent on the size of production. A catastrophic explosion, fire or release of toxic chemicals, however, will not discriminate based on the companys size or its level of sophistication. Therefore, even small and medium sized operations will benefit from prospective counseling, thorough hazard assessment, and careful preparation for such events. Practitioners advice to their clients should extend beyond traditional regulatory compliance. As this article demonstrates, the key to a successful preventative program is a thorough analytical process guided by past experiences, outside ...

If you are pregnant or are in the planning stages of starting a family, it is never too early, or too late, to evaluate possible physical and chemical hazards in your work area. Substances or agents that affect reproductive health or the ability of couples to have healthy children are called "reproductive hazards". These hazards may be from exposure to radiation, chemicals, drugs (legal and illegal), cigarettes, microorganisms, or alcohol. Hazards may affect the male reproductive system, the female reproductive system, and/or the fetus. (UC Davis) Although some specific reproductive hazards have been identified in humans (e.g., lead, solvents, and ionizing radiation), most of the more than 1,000 workplace chemicals that have shown abnormal reproductive effects in animals have not been studied in humans. In addition, according to CDC Handbook of Laboratory Safety, 5th Edition, most of the 4 million other chemical mixtures in commercial use remain untested. We suggest that females inform their ...

Recent advances in stem cell research and establishment of robust protocols for culturing, distribution and phenotyping holds promise for development of a functional cardiac OCM for modeling cardiovascular disease and testing for chemical hazards. The central hypotheses of this proposal are that: (i) stem cell-derived cardiomyocyte cultures constitute an effective organotypic culture model for predictive toxicity screening of environmental chemicals; (ii) a population-based experimental design utilizing a panel of human iPSCs and mouse Collaborative Cross (CC) can assess variation in toxicity to better characterize uncertainties; and (iii) integration of dosimetry with screening provides an in vivo context to in vitro data and improves human health assessments. Project 1 will conduct population-based concentration-response high-content/-throughput in vitro screening of up to 200 ToxCast chemicals in iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes from 100 humans, and will collect pharmacokinetic data using ...
There are tens of thousands of man-made chemicals in the environment, the inherent safety of most of these chemicals is not known. Relevant biological platforms and new computational tools are needed to prioritize testing of chemicals with limited human health hazard information. We describe an experimental design for high-throughput characterization of multidimensional in vivo effects with the power to evaluate trends relating to commonly-cited chemical predictors. We evaluated all 1,060 unique US EPA ToxCast Phase 1 and 2 compounds using the embryonic zebrafish and found that 487 induced significant adverse biological responses. The utilization of 18 simultaneously measured endpoints means that the entire system serves as a robust biological sensor for chemical hazard. The experimental design enabled us to describe global patterns of variation across tested compounds, evaluate the concordance of the available in vitro and in vivo Phase 1 data with this study, highlight specific ...
During the 90-day comment period, EPA asks for information and data on specific regulatory elements and process safety management approaches to enhance public health and safety, and aid local fire, police, and emergency response personnel to prepare for and respond to chemical emergencies. The information received will be used when reviewing chemical hazards covered by the RMP and to determine how this program should be expanded to improve chemical facility safety. The RFI does not commit the agency to rulemaking. To view EPAs RFI and provide public comment, visit http://www.epa.gov/emergencies/eo_improving_chem_fac.htm. ...

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recently released a draft of a revised carcinogen policy. Titled "Update of NIOSH Carcinogen Classification and Target Risk Level Policy for Chemical Hazards in the Workplace," this document was developed in response to stakeholder feedback and scientific advances that have taken place since the original policy was written.. "Our understanding of the science of cancer and our ability to measure potential exposures in the workplace have advanced a great deal since our original policy from 1978," explained NIOSH Director John Howard, M.D. "This revised policy reflects an adaptation to this scientific progress." The goal of the proposed policy is to classify carcinogens more efficiently by using classifications from organizations like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA),the National Toxicology Program (NTP), and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). NIOSH expects these changes will provide more relevant ...

Much of the waste generated in an OR setting is liquid waste, bulk blood or body fluids that are often captured in a suction canister. The US Department of Transportation (DOT) mandates that this waste cannot go out as a liquid and either absorbent material or a solidifier must be added before it can be disposed of as RMW , significantly increasing the waste volume associated with suction canisters. Solidifiers also typically contain chemicals designed to render blood/body fluids non-infectious and can pose a chemical hazard to workers and the environment. Alternatively, with the approval of publicly owned treatment works (POTWs), canisters can be physically emptied into the sanitary sewer but pose a worker exposure risk due to splashing and spills. Fluid management systems can be hooked directly into the sanitary sewer. Canisters are mechanically emptied directly to the sanitary sewer, reducing worker exposure risk. Canisters are then either disinfected and reused, or disposed of as RMW - ...

Over the past two decades, the term "heavy metals" has been used increasingly in various publications and in legislation related to chemical hazards and the safe use of chemicals. It is often used as a group name for metals and semimetals (metalloids) that have been associated with contamination and potential toxicity or ecotoxicity. At the same time, legal regulations often specify a list of heavy metals to which they apply. Such lists may differ from one set of regulations to the other, or the term may be used without specifying which heavy metals are covered.. ...

We propose development of a feature discovery algorithm for identification of multivariate (or composition) biomarker signatures from high-dimensional omics data. The proposed algorithm operates on sets of heterogeneous features and returns a selected subset of significant features and a continuous quantitative metric that is indicative of a particular state of the data (i.e. presence or absence of a toxic hazard). There is no requirement that all features analyzed be of the same type; therefore, the algorithm allows for input of a mixture of data types. The types of data suitable for analysis may be gene expression values, gene copy numbers, presence of particular mutations or SNPs, or methylation patterns. Initially this algorithm was formulated for mining for complex biomarkers in oncology, and is extended here for the purpose of continuous monitoring of environmental and chemical hazards ...
As a consultant, Mr. Warren has been particularly successful in defending or revising NOAELs, designing key supplementary or mechanistic studies, waiving costly and time-consuming studies for minor uses, and critically assessing conflicts between published research and known regulatory results. Mr. Warrens first-hand familiarity with European regulatory processes permits fine judgment on the level of data required for regulatory comfort. Past experience includes investigation of mechanisms of endocrine disruption, and of interpretation of data for classification of chemical hazard under the Classification, Labelling and Packaging Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 and GHS with particular respect to specific target organ toxicity and the "CMR"s. Mr. Warrens expertise is particularly relevant to EU regulation under the Plant Protection Products Regulation (EC) No 1107/2009, the Biocides Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 and REACH (EC) No 1907/2006 ...

Id like to join in on the blame game that has come to define our national approach to the ongoing environmental disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. This isnt BPs or Transoceans fault. Its not the governments fault. Its my fault. Im the one to blame and Im sorry. Its my fault because I havent digested the worlds in-your-face hints that maybe I ought to think about the future and change the unsustainable way I live my life. If the geopolitical, economic, and technological shifts of the 1990s didnt do it; if the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11 didnt do it; if the current economic crisis didnt do it; perhaps this oil spill will be the catalyst for me, as a citizen, to wean myself off of my petroleum-based lifestyle. Citizen is the key word. Its what we do as individuals that count. For those on the left, government regulation will not solve this problem. Governments role should be to create an environment of opportunity that taps into the innovation and entrepreneurialism that define us ...
Between climate change, natural disasters, and nuclear fallout, it can feel like humanity is careening toward a species-ending catastrophe faster than you can say "extinction." Although most of us would prefer to dwell on the positives, and what we can do to ward off such a disaster, there are some who would rather be prepared for the worst.. Japanese design studio Takram recently received an interesting challenge: create a water bottle that might come in handy after a hypothetical future environmental disaster. When water supplies are contaminated, our current solution is to truck in bottled water. But what if all fresh water supplies are compromised, and we eventually run out of water? Takram imagined that we might need something more sophisticated than a bottle.. ...
I charge the movie with half-heartedness because the setting that the film takes place in (post apocalyptic environmental disaster zone, spaceship filled with humans who have turned into gelatinous blobs) is a setting that begs for explanation. We are told that the humans are responsible for it, but we arent given any insight into just how this took place. What was the process that leads humans to a fate of inactivity and mindless chatting? I honestly feel that a setting that seems to not only blame humans for ecological disaster and then insult humans by insinuating that this is the eventual future for us, begs for more context and more specificity in how we can turn from this terrible fate. This is what makes the robot meet cute scenes a little disingenuous; for while they are having one cute slapstick moment after another, the movie never takes the time to explain itself. The movie is less interested in explaining its inherently insulting premise than bowling us over for cuteness. Even the ...
Laurie Johnson and her colleagues work hard to impress upon her government and the US public that their energy addiction cannot continue with fossil fuels. The only future seems to be renewable. For some, the future has been blackened with environmental disaster. Perhaps that will help to change the stubborn politicians minds.
We have here yet another example of the overuse of anti-septic products contributing to an environmental disaster," CDC spokeswoman Beth Luddington complained. "We didnt think any organism other than fraternity boys could build up this kind of tolerance to the effects of alcohol, but, well, apparently, we were wrong." The bacteria appear to have developed itty bitty liverelles in addition to their usual complement of other organelles, which have allowed them to imbibe the alcohol. They have also developed ethanol storage vacuoles, which scientists have scientifically named "beer bellies". From a few points of origin, the drunken bacteria have spread rapidly. "It seems as though the presence of alcohol has actually increased their reproduction rate," Luddington explained. Alcohol affected bacteria are apparently less selective when it comes to finding a mate. A similar phenomena, known as the "beer goggles effect", afflicts humans as well. "I have seen a truly ugly Staphylococcus still getting ...

Reelz Channel, still testing the boundaries of its slogan "TV About Movies," decides maybe it should try invading Syfy Channel territory with its new mini-series, the disasterrific Ring of Fire. Like every Syfy movie that doesnt involve an oversized monster mashup (Sharktopus or Boa vs. Python), Ring of Fire features an environmental disaster, a bunch of vaguely familiar TV stars and lots of CGI. Reelz takes it to the next level, though, offering us full-fledged C-list stars (sorry Debbie Gibson and Dean Cain), some more expensive CGI and a couch-busting four-hour runtime. ...

Yeah ever heard of the love canal in New York. Well it wasnt really an experiment, but a bunch of kids got sick for no apparent reason.
