Occupational safety and health in Japan: current situations and the future. (1/4)

The Industrial Safety and Health Law enacted in 1972 has contributed much to the progress of occupational safety and health (OSH) activities. Many indicators including death and illness statistics show continued improvement up to date. The establishment of OSH organization within enterprises and 5-yr administrative programs formulated by the Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare (MHLW) were important factors for satisfactory management. The past programs indicate that the weight of self regulation in comparison to legal control gradually increased since late 1990s. In spite of the past achievement, many hazards such as overwork, mental stress, chemical agents and others still remain to be prevented. The systematic risk assessment of unregulated chemicals by the MHLW proved to be an effective scheme for risk-based management and to deserve continued implementation. The size of human resources for OSH was estimated at 1.5 million. In view of the adverse effect on OSH by economic, social and political environment in the future, the importance of the efficiency of OSH management was indicated. Since the efficiency depends on the competence of OSH personnel and the level of scientific basis, it was concluded that the fundamental policy for the future should give high priority to education and research.  (+info)

These days, legislation rarely makes it through Congress without support from interest groups on both sides of the issue, forcing lawmakers to draft bills that are largely balanced. Now, however, the American people are being pushed by big polluters to accept chemical safety legislation advanced by one of Washingtons most ardent anti-environmental advocates, Sen. David Vitter, R-La., that has virtually zero support in the environmental and public health communities.. The bill is the industry-backed Chemical Safety Improvement Act, which would take the worst of all major federal environmental laws, the Toxic Substances Control Act, and make it even worse, according to months of meticulous analysis by dozens of public interest groups, legal scholars and state environment and law enforcement officials.. This shouldnt come as a surprise. Vitters environmental voting record in Congress has a lifetime score of only 4 percent from the League of Conservation Voters. Vitters record on environmental ...

Christine Todd Whitman, the former US Environmental Protection Agency head, on Thursday called the proposal to get rid of Chemical Safety Board (CSB) and cut EPA funding short-sighted, saying both have long been an industry target for advocating greater public information on chemicals.. If you want to put the American people in danger this is the way to do it, she said of the presidents proposal to cut the CSBs funding entirely from the 2018 federal budget. The chemical industry has fought back from the beginning.. The CSB investigates major chemicals accidents to search for their causes and makes recommendations that could prevent a recurrence. It has no regulatory power, but is influential because its recommendations are often adopted by industry, labor, government officials, the EPA and Occupational Safety and Health Administration.. The president on Thursday outlined a plan for fiscal 2018 discretionary spending, which exclude programs like Social Security, that removes allocations for ...

Short-term toxicity to fish: The toxicity of N,N-dimethylacetamide to fish was investigated in a static test conducted according to DIN 38412, part 15 using Leuciscus idus as test organism (BASF AG, 1979; report no. 78/277). Based on nominal test concentrations the 96-h LC50 was found to be ,500 mg/L. These data were selected as key data in terms of the chemical safety assessment. In conclusion, N,N-dimethylacetamide (CAS 127-19-5) is concluded to be with high probability acutely not harmful to fish. Long-term toxicity to fish: No experimental data available. In Annex IX section 9.1.6 of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, it is laid down that chronic tests shall be proposed by the registrant if the chemical safety assessment indicates the need to investigate further the effects on fish. According to Annex I of this regulation, the chemical safety assessment triggers further action when the substance or the preparation meets the criteria for classification as dangerous according to Regulation ...
Current problems in the safety evaluation of chemicals, including species differences in chemical toxicity, the difficulty in predicting whether metabolism will result in detoxication or activation, the different metabolic roles of tissue cytochromes P-450, and the significance of oxygen radical formation, are reviewed. A number of specific chemical problems are discussed, including the safety evaluation of benzene, methylene dichloride, DDT, dieldrin, TCDD, the PCBs, and the hepatotoxic drugs: benoxaprofen and tienilic acid. Two novel methods for the prospective evaluation of chemical toxicity are described, namely (i) computer optimized parametric analysis for chemical toxicity (COMPACT) based on the computer graphic determination of chemical structure and its relationship to specific cytochromes P-450 and hence toxicity, and (ii) enzyme activation in chemical toxicity (ENACT) based on the induction of specific cytochromes P-450 by the chemical, from which toxicity can be predicted.. ...

Industry is responsible for managing the risks of chemicals and providing safety information on them. Under REACH, manufacturers and importers must gather and pass on information on the properties of their chemicals so that users can handle them safely. Industry also needs to comply with protective measures, as restrictions or authorisation.. The Classification, Labelling and Packaging Regulation (CLP) requires that the hazards must be clearly communicated to workers and consumers in the EU. Industry must identify any hazardous properties of their chemicals (substances or mixtures) that could cause harm to humans or the environment. They must classify them in line with the identified hazards. Hazardous chemicals must be labelled appropriately so that users, whether workers or consumers, can clearly understand their effects and make informed choices on products they buy and use.. With the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR), suppliers of active biocidal substances must provide information on the ...

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex IX, Section 9.2 and 9.2.1.2 as well as 9.2.1.4, Column 2, the simulation test on ultimate degradation in surface water and sediment simulation testing do not need to be conducted as the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicates that there is no need to investigate further the degradation of the substance and its degradation products. The risk characterization ratios (RCRs) of the chemical safety assessment are below 1, indicating that the risks are acceptable. Therefore, no biodegradation studies in surface water or sediment will be provided. In addition, due to the results of the tests according to OECD guideline 301C and OECD guideline 302B biodegradation cannot be expected for DMDC in the environment. This finding is supported by the chemical structure of the substance which indicates a low potential for biodegradation. Therefore, no further tests on biodegradation are performed because it is not expected that further ...

One important aspect of understanding chemical safety is recognizing the differences in the toxic potential of pesticides. Pesticides are grouped into four subgroups based on their ability to cause lethality (death) or to damage the eyes or skin. The standard measure of lethality is known as the lethal dose 50 (LD50). The LD50 value for a pesticide is the dose (grams/kilograms of body weight) of the pesticide that will kill 50% of an exposed population(of mice or rats or other test animals). The lower the LD50 value, the more toxic the pesticide.. The most toxic pesticides carry the signal word DANGER on the label, are listed as highly toxic and are classified by the Environmental Protection Agency as Category I pesticides. Based on lethality information, it would only take ingestion of a few drops of a liquid or about 3.5 grams (remember that there are 454 grams per pound) of a solid to kill a 150 lb man. Category I pesticides with this lethality potential can only be applied by licensed ...

In the flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey in August, the water rose so rapidly at the Arkema chemical plant in Crosby, Texas site that the first combustion occurred less than 72 hours after flooding commenced. The backup generators at Arkema were elevated 2 feet off the ground, but the flooding exceeded 3 feet in the vicinity of the generators. In short, says the U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB), the facility was not prepared for such heavy rainfall and such a rapid flood rate. When the floodwaters knocked out power to the plants refrigerators, leaving the organic peroxides and volatile chemicals stores at the plant at risk of heating up, Arkema employees moved the peroxides to refrigerated trailers. But the waters kept rising, forcing the evacuation of the workers and ultimately flooding the trailers ...

Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) as amended by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, requires EPA to publish this list by December 19, 2016. These chemicals were drawn from EPAs 2014 TSCA Work Plan, a list of 90 chemicals selected based on their potential for high hazard and exposure as well as other considerations.. When the list is published in the Federal Register it will trigger a statutory deadline to complete risk evaluations for these chemicals within three years. This evaluation will determine whether the chemicals present an unreasonable risk to humans and the environment. If it is determined that a chemical presents an unreasonable risk, EPA must mitigate that risk within two years.. Under the newly amended law, EPA must release a scoping document within six months for each chemical. This will include the hazard(s), exposure(s), conditions of use, and the potentially exposed or susceptible subpopulation(s) the agency plans to consider for the ...

Abiotic degradation The endpoints Phototransformation of an element in water, soil or air are not relevant for substances that are assessed using a read-across approach on an elemental basis, i.e., based on the exposure and effects of strontium, expressed as elemental Sr. The term Hydrolysis refers to the Decomposition or degradation of a chemical by reaction with water, and this as a function of pH (i.e., abiotic degradation). The need for testing may be waived if The substance is highly insoluble in water, or if The substance is readily biodegradable. The latter property of a substance assumes a rapid mineralization of the substance and therefore hydrolysis tests will provide little information. In the case of the current substance the chemical safety assessment is based on elemental metal concentration, i.e., the assessment of strontium is conducted regardless of the (pH-dependent) speciation in the environment. Hence, as the assessment is based on the element concentration, ...

According to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex IX, Column 2, 9.1.6, long-term toxicity testing shall be proposed by the registrant if the chemical safety assessment according to Annex I indicate the need to investigate further effects on aquatic organisms. The substance does not need further investigations due to the following reasons. As the test substance is highly insoluble in water (, 0.01 mg/L), if at all, only very small amounts of the test substance are expected in water. Furthermore, no effects were observed to aquatic algae, daphnia and fish in the range of water solubility. Since only low amounts of the test substance can be expected in the aquatic environment and no adverse effects of the substance are expected no long-term tests on invertebrates should be performed. ...
In vitro methods have provided a valuable tool for toxicological research over the years. Historically, these methods have made significant contributions to our understanding of toxic mechanisms of action and xenobiotic metabolism and, in this context, have provided an indispensable resource for investigative toxicology. More recently, the value of in vitro systems as toxicity tests for chemical safety and hazard evaluation has been recognized and explored. Whether the in vitro approach is employed as a model system for investigative research or as a toxicity test for risk assessment, a critical component is the biological system. Selection and successful culturing of the appropriate cell, tissue or organ for a particular scientific purpose is essential for a satisfactory outcome. The objective of this volume is to provide both beginning and established researchers with basic techniques employed by widely recognized scientists to prepare and maintain the biological components of in vitro model systems.

In the simplest form of three-strand braid, all the hair is initially divided into three sections, which are then simultaneously gathered together near the scalp. In contrast, a French braid starts with three small sections of hair near the crown of the head, which are then braided together toward the nape of the neck, gradually adding more hair to each section as it crosses in from the side into the center of the braid structure. The final result incorporates all of the hair into a smoothly woven pattern over the scalp. If the main mass of hair is initially parted into two or more sections along the scalp that are kept separate from one another, multiple French braids may be created, each in its own section. One unique feature about the French braid is that an individual can braid their own hair without the help of others. The difficulty of braiding can depend on the type of hair the individual has, some styles of hair are easier to braid than others. The length of hair also plays a role in the ...
