Analysis of the comprehensibility of chemical hazard communication tools at the industrial workplace. (6/22)

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)

Risk assessment has been extensively developed in several scientific fields, such as environmental science, economics, and civil engineering, among others. In the aftermath of the SPS and GATT agreements on the use of risk analysis framework in food trade, signed in the 1990s, international organisations and governments adopted risk assessment as a science-based process to ensure food safety along the food chain. The food industry can also benefit from the use of this approach for food process optimisation and quality assurance. Risk Assessment Methods for Biological and Chemical Hazards in Food introduces the reader to quantitative risk assessment methods encompassing general concepts to specific applications to biological and chemical hazards in foods. In the first section, the book presents food risk assessment as methodology and addresses, more specifically, new trends and approaches such as the development of risk rating methods, risk metrics, risk-benefit assessment studies and quality

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

Irelands largest environmental marine disaster exercise continues in the Shannon Estuary on Thursday.. Over 200 people from a variety of State agencies are involved in the exercise which began on Wednesday morning and includes the replication of a 43,000-tonne container ship suffering hull damage and floundering off the coast of Scattery Island. It resulted in a temporary no fly zone over the area. The Irish Coast Guard and the naval vessel the LÉ Orla are also onsite.. It is the first exercise involving remotely operated submarine and aerial vehicles in Europe. The exercise is a first in terms of scale and use of robotic platforms. It is Irelands largest marine emergency response exercise and is aimed at dealing with a major environmental disaster.. The University of Limerick is leading the integration and deployment of the underwater and aerial technologies, within this exercise as part of a European Research Collaboration NETMAR which has Irish, UK, French, Spanish and Portuguese ...
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 ...
St. Louis, Missouri 63102. Dear Mr. Pellegrini:. This is in response to your letter of July 21 concerning the Hazard Communication Standard, 29 CFR 1910.1200.. 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 ...
Subject: NIOSH carcinogen and target risk level policies. Purpose: To update the NIOSH policies about chemical carcinogens in the workplace and the NIOSH target risk level policy for chemical carcinogens.

In 2015, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) promulgated the Preventive Controls Rule to control known or reasonably foreseeable biological, chemical, radiological and physical hazards in human food. This rule was the centerpiece of a series of rules mandated by the FDAs Food Safety Modernization Act of 2011 (FSMA). The driving force for the rules and the law has been reducing pathogenic contamination in food. However, the Preventive Controls Rule defines a hazard to include any chemical, whether a contaminant or an additive, that
The WHO estimates that up to 23% of the global burden of cardiovascular diseases, a leading cause of death, is attributable to environmental chemicals. Methods for assessment of cardiac safety of non-pharmaceutical agents lag behind the traditional health hazards of concern to human health (carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, reproductive toxicity, etc.). The long-term objective of the Center is to advance chemical risk assessment by establishing and validating effective, accurate and fiscally responsible means for identifying/characterizing cardiac chemical hazards.. 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 OCM for predictive toxicity screening of environmental chemicals; (ii) a ...
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 ...

In this study we compared the efficiency of different amendments, notably red mud (a bauxite residue), natural zeolite and lime, to immobilize the heavy metals present in a polluted acidic soil [Pb (3266 mg kg− 1 d.m.), Cd (35.4 mg kg− 1 d.m.) and Zn (1495 mg kg− 1 d.m.)] and to influence several microbiological properties. The addition of all the amendments decreased significantly (P , 0.05) the solubility of Pb, Cd and Zn and the increase of soil pH was identified as a common mechanism of action for both red mud and lime. Despite reducing the heavy metal solubility, the addition of zeolite and lime did not affect the number of culturable fast-growing heterotrophic bacteria whereas the red mud caused a significant increase (P , 0.05) of this soil microbial component. All the amendments reduced the number of heterotrophic fungi (P , 0.05) while only the lime addition influenced negatively the number of free-living N2-fixing bacteria. Furthermore, the addition of red mud and lime caused a ...

The nose of the common fruit fly could soon be used to detect drugs and explosives thanks to new research that has revealed the flys impressive ability to sniff out a range of hazardous chemicals. In a study published today, 15 October, in IOP Publishings journal Bioinspiration and Biomimetics, an international team of researchers has shown that the fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) can not only detect the familiar smell of rotting fruit, but also a whole host of chemicals associated with explosives, combustion products and illicit drugs. It is hoped that the sensors on the antennae of the fruit fly could be integrated into future electronic noses (e-noses), making the devices much faster and more sensitive to a whole host of chemicals.
We worked in the Centre for Bacterial Cell Biology (CBCB) at Newcastle University for the entire project, where there are clearly defined safety rules and regulations that all laboratory workers must follow. One of our advisors, Dr Wendy Smith, guided us through the safety procedures along with some of the basic techniques during the first introductory week, before any laboratory work on the project began. This included carrying out the following risk assessments to determine what control measures would be required. (i)Chemical Hazards: At the beginning of the project written risk assessments were already available in the host laboratories for all procedures that involved potentially hazardous chemicals. These risk assessments were reviewed and the recommended control measures were strictly followed throughout. No additional chemical hazards specific to this project were identified. (ii)Radioisotopes and carcinogens: None of these were used in this project. (iii)Biological hazards: Throughout ...

Prevention of environmentally-induced cancers is a health issue of unquestionable importance. Almost every sphere of human activity in an industrialized society faces potential chemical hazards of some form. It is estimated that nearly 100,000 chemicals are in use in large amounts every day. A further 500-1000 are added every year. Only a small fraction of these chemicals have been evaluated for toxic effects like carcinogenicity. The US National Toxicology Program (NTP) contributes to this enterprise by conducting standardized chemical bioassays---exposure of rodents (mice and rats) to a range of chemicals--- to help identify substances that may have carcinogenic effects on humans. However, obtaining empirical evidence from such bioassays is expensive and usually too slow to cope with the number of chemicals that can result in adverse effects on human exposure. This has resulted in an urgent need for carcinogenicity models based on chemical structures and properties. It is envisaged that such ...

Swimming pool sanitation is the process of ensuring healthy conditions in swimming pools, hot tubs, plunge pools, and similar recreational water venues. Proper sanitation is needed to maintain the visual clarity of water and to prevent the transmission of infectious waterborne diseases. Sanitation methods include a water filter to remove pollutants, disinfection to kill infectious microorganisms, swimmer hygiene to minimize the introduction of contaminants into pool water, and regular testing of pool water, including chlorine and pH levels. The World Health Organization has published international guidelines for the safety of swimming pools and similar recreational-water environments, including standards for minimizing microbial and chemical hazards. The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also provides information on pool sanitation and water related illnesses for health professionals and the public. The main organizations providing certifications for pool and spa operators ...

The 2010 Deepwater Horizon accident in the Gulf of Mexico resulted in the deaths of 11 oil rig workers and ultimately the largest marine oil spill in history. As this environmental disaster recedes into history, researchers from institutions across the U.S. continue to study its enduring ecological impacts.
Hudson, Ohio 44236. Dear Mr. Richardson:. This is in response to your letter of December 13, 1986, requesting clarification of the terms appropriate hazard warning and mandatory as used in the Occupational Safety and Health Administrations (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard.. Concerning appropriate hazard warning, OSHAs guidelines to its compliance staff on the Hazard Communication Standard OSHA Instruction CPL 2-2.38A Change 1, page A-11, enclosed states that the specific hazards indicated in the standards definition for physical and health hazards must be used in evaluating the appropriateness of specific warnings. In the example you presented, if the only scientific information available is the LC(50) of 5 milligrams per kilogram administered orally to rats, highly toxic if ingested may be the appropriate warning. If the chemical causes specific target organ effects when ingested, then the specific target organ effects would be appropriate.. As stated in Appendix B of the ...
The label should identify the hazardous material, the type of hazard - health or physical - and the manufacturer, producer, or importers name and address. The label must be in English and may also be in another language.. The Hazard Communication Standard requires construction employers to ensure that the label is not removed or defaced. In addition, employers are required to provide employees who may be exposed to the hazardous material with training and education on how to identify the hazard, protective measures, and an explanation of the label and the safety data sheet.. Update to the Standard: The revisions to the Hazard Communication Standard aligned it with the United Nations global chemical labeling system. By 2016, the following pictograms will be used to label materials that present a health hazard for users:. ...
Ethics plays an ever increasing role in our society today, and environmental ethics and business ethics must be first and foremost. This has become more prevalent in our society today, especially after the Wall Street melt down a couple of years ago, and people have been swindled far too often by unethical business practices. Those unethical business practices have also carried over into environmental ethics, and bad corporate behaviors have contributed to many of our current environmental issues, While Wall Street and profit mongers control much of the business model, they must also include environmental ethics into their corporate strategies. This also boils down to social responsibilities, in that the bad effects of environmental neglect by corporations leads to a high degree of social issues arising from negligent corporate environmental actions.. In 2010 we experienced a wave of environmental disasters, some of which can be attributed to corporate environmental neglect. The BP Oil Spill and ...
When the Deepwater Horizon oil platform exploded in late April, few expected the story to be dominating headlines almost six weeks later. However, as oil began to spill out and BPs numerous efforts to contain the problem failed, it became increasingly clear that this would become one of the worst environmental disasters in world history. In its latest attempt, BP tried to plug the leak using a top kill method, which sought to pump mud into the well. More than 1.2 million gallons of mud were used, but BP retreated from the plan over the weekend as it became clear that the top kill was not going to be successful due to most of the mud escaping out of the damaged riser.. The spill, which is by some estimates the largest in U.S. history, has no end in sight and appears likely to last until August at the earliest. Currently, government estimates believe that roughly 12,000-19,000 barrels are spilling into the Gulf every day, with the total to date equal to three times the oil spilled in the ...
by Howard Nema. The EPA recently caused the one of the worst environmental disasters in U.S. history by intentionally poisoning the environment they are supposedly tasked with protecting.. The Environmental Protection Agency was working on a mine when the spill occurred, dumping millions of gallons of toxic pollution into the river turning the Animas River mustard yellow. As a result, water tested by the EPA confirms high levels of arsenic and lead. More than 3 million gallons were spilled into the Animas, whose waters flow into the San Juan River and the Colorado River. The liars at the EPA says its not harmful to humans, and the fish theyve monitored after the spill havent had extraordinary death rates.. Really? Use your own common sense there, folks. I dont think so.. People living along the Animas River who consume the water are rightly concerned with the potential long-term health problems associated with the spill.. EPA mouthpieces say the water is moving fast enough so that the metals ...
Does the environment have a causal effect on economic development? Using meteorological data, we reconstruct every countrys exposure to the universe of tropical cyclones during 1950-2008. We exploit random within-country year-to-year variation in cyclone strikes to identify the causal effect of environmental disasters on long-run growth. We compare each countrys growth rate to itself in the years immediately before and after exposure, accounting for the distribution of cyclones in preceding years. The data reject hypotheses that disasters stimulate growth or that short-run losses disappear following migrations or transfers of wealth. Instead, we find robust evidence that national incomes decline, relative to their pre-disaster trend, and do not recover within twenty years. Both rich and poor countries exhibit this response, with losses magnified in countries with less historical cyclone experience. Income losses arise from a small but persistent suppression of annual growth rates spread across ...
This month marked the second anniversary of an environmental disaster in Ohio that was both monumental and invisible.. The fire and explosion at a natural gas fracking well in Ohios rural Belmont County blew more than 60,000 tons of colorless, odorless methane gas into the atmosphere before workers were able to cap the well. The fire burned for three days, but the methane continued to pour out invisibly for nearly three weeks. For anyone with a long memory or a Hulu subscription, the disaster recalled scenes of Hellfighters, the 1968 film in which a character played by the actor John Wayne struggled against a horrendous oil rig explosion.. The 60,000 tons of methane that the Ohio gas well spewed out in 20 days amounted to way more than the oil and gas industries of entire European nations release in a year. It was one-quarter of the annual methane emissions coming from the American oil and gas industry, said Steven Hamburg, the chief scientist at the Environmental Defense Fund.. Yet the ...

The land application of sewage sludge has been promoted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) since 1993 as the preferred method for the disposal of this by-product of municipal wastewater treatment. Millions of tons of hazardous sewage sludge have subsequently been spread on farmland and public parks in the United States. No matter how it is processed or how slick it is marketed as a fertilizer or soil amendment, putting sewage sludge on land is a health and environmental disaster.
Is this the end? If youre a follower of Stephen King, you know that human civilization isnt likely to collapse under the heel of a cataclysmic war, environmental disaster or errant space debris-nothing so dramatic or special effects driven. Instead, human life will most likely be snuffed out by something we cant see-a virus. In his mammoth novel (1153 pages in its uncut form), The Stand, King writes about a superflu that wipes out much of human civilization. Given the recent hysteria over influenza A(H1N1) (keeping with the most current nomenclature) youd think King might have been onto something.. In The Stand, the superflu, referred to colloquially as Captain Trips, was human as opposed to porcine in origin. The bug escaped from a government weapons facility, as these sorts of super viruses are wont to do, and crawled across North America, infecting 99.4 percent of the population and killing its victims at a 100 percent clip. Fictitious or not, those are grave numbers indeed. How does ...

July 15, 2020: Drs Abrol and Crowhurst have published a collaborative paper, with former students Sayuri Pacheco, Marlyn Widjaja and Jafaeth Gomez as co-authors. The paper, titled The complex role of the N-terminus and acidic residues of HdeA as pH-dependent switches in its chaperone function will be published in the September issue of the journal Biophysical Chemistry. They were also asked to provide cover artwork (shown above) for the issue. The figure caption reads HdeA is a chaperone protein activated at low pH. Through NMR experiments and MD simulations Pacheco et al. found that a hydrophobic client binding site is blocked at pH 7 by interactions with N- and C-terminal residues in the dimer. At pH 2, the HdeA chaperone becomes activated, in part, due to increased contacts between the N-and C-termini on each protomer, making the client binding site accessible..

As part of a project on environmental disasters (5), this study aimed to evaluate ethnic differences in genes involved in susceptibility to environmental agents. We described NAT2 genotypes, predicted haplotypes, and deduced phenotypes in a Central Asian (Kyrgyz) and a European (Romanian) study population. During the last decade, a high degree of variability in NAT2 alleles has been found at 15 nucleotide positions and documented in the NAT database. The SNP500Cancer Project verified 9 nucleotide positions of these 15 and an additional SNP in the 3′ flanking region. A first decision has therefore to be made on the selection of sequence variants in studies of genetic susceptibility (10). We selected all NAT2 sequence variants which were verified as polymorphic by the SNP500Cancer Project for genotyping with matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry. Two variants (364G,A and 411A,T) turned out to be monomorphic in the Kyrgyz and Romanian study groups. No assay ...
Human security is fundamentally concerned with helping people to deal with unforeseeable threats and sudden downturns, whether international financial crises, environmental disasters or incapacitating illnesses. In this paper I argue that NGOs, as one of the most visible sets of actors in the related fields of human development and human rights, can play a significant role in helping to achieve human security. NGOs are especially well suited to action for human security because of their size and reach, closeness to local populations, willingness to confront the status quo, and ability to address transnational threats through coalition-building. While NGOs face many obstacles in reorienting their activities explicitly towards human security, including the cyclical nature of the aid monies on which many of them depend and the high costs of networking, I argue that the human security framework will nonetheless attract many NGOs to its approach. This publication is Hauser Center Working Paper No. 12. The

I am 47years old and have returned to swimming as a fitness choice. I get 3 workouts of 2500yds/week and feel great. I also have an inground pool that my family enjoys in the summer months. My question relates to the long term consequences of chlorine exposure. Do studies exist that show whether swimmers have an increased health risk to cancers? Has anyone looked at pool chlorine exposure as a health risk in any way? The pools I swim in all use chlorine as a sanitizer and I would hate to
Abstract. When the war was over in 1945, Germany was a country with no government, little functioning infrastructure, millions of refugees and homeless people, and huge foreign armies living largely off the land. Large parts of the country were covered in rubble, with no clean drinking water, electricity, or gas. Hospitals overflowed with patients, but were short of beds, medicines, and medical personnel. In these conditions, the potential for epidemics and public health disasters was severe. This is a study of how the four occupiers-Britain, France, the Soviet Union, and the United States-attempted to keep their own troops and the ex-enemy population alive. While the war was still being fought, German public health was a secondary consideration for them, an unaffordable and undeserved luxury. But once fighting ceased and the occupation began, it rapidly turned into a urgent priority. Public health was now recognized as an indispensable component of creating order, keeping the population ...
CSL Limited is a global specialty biotechnology company that researches, develops, manufactures and markets products to treat and prevent serious human medical conditions. CSLs product areas include blood plasma derivatives, vaccines, antivenom, and cell culture reagents used in various medical and genetic research and manufacturing applications. Founded in 1916 the Commonwealth Serum Laboratories, an Australian government body focused on vaccine manufacture. Under the first director, William Penfold, CSL commenced operation in the vacant Walter and Eliza Hall Institute building at the Melbourne Hospital in 1918, before moving to its purpose-built Parkville premises in the following year. After ongoing disputes with the Commonwealth Department of Health and its director, (John) Howard Cumpston, Penfold resigned in 1927 and was replaced by Frederic Morgan. Soon after Morgans appointment, CSL was drawn into a serious public health disaster when a batch of its diphtheria toxin-antitoxin was ...
