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 ...

The chemical safety report should cover the risks to human health and/or the environment from the use(s) of the substance. Unless critical for an assessment of alternatives, the chemical safety report only needs to cover the hazard properties of the substance listed on Annex XIV.. If you use the reference derived no-effect levels (DNELs) and dose-response relationships published by RAC, the chemical safety report only needs to include part A, the exposure assessment (Section 9) and risk characterisation (Section 10) for each of the uses applied for as well as the physico-chemical properties of the substance that are relevant to any exposure modelling performed. This is particularly important for downstream users, if they do not have access to the registration chemical safety report.. You need to include a succinct summary of the risk management measures and operational conditions in your application. The succinct summary is an extract of the full set of conditions described in the chemical ...
According to chapter R.7b of Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment (ECHA, 2008), substances with a Koc , 500 - 1000 L/kg are not likely sorbed to sediment. Therefore, sediment represents no target compartment due to the low adsorption potential of the test substance. The PNEC sediment is calculated for sake of completeness based on the PNEC aquatic using the equilibrium partitioning method as recommended in chapter R.10 of Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment (ECHA, 2008). Furthermore, according to Annnex X of the Reach regulation long-term toxicity testing shall be proposed of the results of the chemical safety assessment indicate the need to inverstigate further the effects of the substance on sediment organisms. As the safety assement indicates RCR value below 1, testing on sediment organisms is not necessary. ...

BREs Chemical Assessment Team are experts in the environmental risk assessment of chemicals. The team have a long history of providing independent and authoritative advice to clients on the risks to the environment associated with the production, use and disposal of chemicals and act as advisors to both government and industry.. The REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) regulation has major implications for companies within the UK and EU that produce, import of use chemical substances, or products containing chemical substances. Under this legislation, companies have to Register the chemicals they produce or import, and for the more dangerous substances they will also have to carry out a Chemical Safety Assessment and produce a Chemical Safety Report outlining the conditions under which the substance can be used safely. Users of the substance or products containing the substance (downstream users) will have to demonstrate that they comply with the ...
In 2016, The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) was reformed after the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act was signed by President Obama, to enforce a more thorough assessment of harmful chemicals by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Under the new chemical safety act, the EPA is now required to assess all existing chemicals and adhere to strict deadlines before they become available to the consumer.. In late 2016, a list of 10 chemicals was published by the EPA as the first to be evaluated for potential health and environmental risks under this new legislation. Asbestos is among these 10. Under the newly reformed TSCA, the EPA is required to release a scoping document for each chemical that will include hazards, exposure, conditions of use, and a list of those in the population who can potentially be exposed. If the chemical is found to be dangerous, the EPA is then obligated to take action and reduce risk within two years.. While taking a more critical look at ...
WASHINGTON - Today the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced nearly $11 million in grants to eight universities through EPAs Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program.

In general, assessment factors (AF) recommended by ECHA (Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment. Chapter R.8: Characterisation of dose[concentration]-response for human health. European Chemicals Agency, Version 2.1, November 2012) were used when applicable to derive the DNELs. Several AFs for which there is additional information were refined. The difference in metabolic rate between humans and the test species has been taken into account, where relevant. Conversion of oral NOAEL to inhalatory NAEC As starting point the NOAEL of 300 mg/kg bw/day of the 2 generation drinking water study (Biggs et al., 1999) was chosen for the risk assessment. For details on study selection please refer to IUCLID section 7.5. Since there is no dose descriptor for every exposure route, dose descriptors were converted into a correct starting point by route-to-route extrapolation based on the ECHA guidance document Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment. ...

The Chemical Safety Report (Part 2) was fully generated from the IUCLID 6.1 and Chesar 3.2 files. The notes were manually included. The full CSR was generated in Chesar 3.2 .. Please note that the IUCLID 6.1 substance dataset contains only the information that is reported in the CSR (Sections 1 to 8). REACH, however, also requires that the robust test summaries that form the basis for the hazard assessment part of the CSR are included in the IUCLID technical dossier. The details that are necessary to make the robust study summaries complete and thereby a compliant REACH technical dossier are not reported in the dataset, as these details are not meant to be transferred to the CSR. The IUCLID 6.1 substance dataset is limited to the establishment of a CSR only. It is not an example of IUCLID model data for REACH compliance with regard to completeness of the technical dossier.. ECHA has also developed suggested templates for Sections 9 and 10 of the Chemical Safety Report. These may be helpful for ...

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 ...
Charlotte, NC, July 31, 2007 - In a final report released today on last years fatal explosion at the Synthron chemical manufacturing facility in Morganton, North Carolina, the U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) concluded that the companys management of reactive chemical hazards was inadequate and that the facility was unprepared for a chemical process emergency.

Article The Chemical Safety Improvement Act: An In-Depth Review and Analysis. In a stunning bipartisan show of support for reform of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) that few saw coming, Senators David Vitter (R-LA) and Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ)...
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.. ...
EHS provides the following containers for chemical waste collection, activities requiring special containers are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.. DO NOT FILL CONTAINERS TO THE TOP. Fill plastic carboys ONLY to the fill line. Leave about 2 inches at the top of all other containers. All waste must reside in closed, non-leaking containers. Do not use flasks or test tubes with stoppers, beakers with parafilm, or bottles with ground glass stoppers. The outside of the waste container must be reasonably clean. Do not put liquids in containers designed for solids. They leak!. All chemical waste containers must remain CLOSED (capped) except when waste is being added-this is a regulatory requirement. Additionally, when chemical waste containers are left uncapped, laboratory personnel are at the risk of chemical exposure due to inhalation of chemical vapors.. It is very important that the waste container is made of a material that is compatible with the waste to be put in it. Do not put acidic or basic ...
As a chemist by training, Ive always been loath to give credence to unfounded criticism of synthetic chemicals that might stoke up chemophobia. Indeed, on several occasions I have written about how our bodies have evolved to cope with all kinds of chemicals regardless of whether they are synthetic or "natural". Ive never been a shill for the chemical industry, although I have been accused of it. But, there is so much misguided nonsense about the supposed absolute risks of synthetic chemicals that someone has to provide a little balance.. On at least one occasion, however, Ive been thwarted in my efforts to provide just such a balanced point of view the issues surrounding chemical safety. Once it was a blinkered features editor on a well-known popular science magazine who simply refused to see past the word "manmade" and had already decided that if the product being discussed wasnt derived from an extract of hemp or some other natural material and squeezed out by native bushpeople or some ...

Tetrabromoethane (TBE) is a halogenated hydrocarbon, chemical formula C2H2Br4. Although three bromine atoms may bind to one of the carbon atoms creating 1,1,1,2-tetrabromoethane this is not thermodynamically favorable, so in practice tetrabromoethane is equal to 1,1,2,2-tetrabromoethane, where each carbon atom binds two bromine atoms. It has an unusually high density for an organic compound, near 3 g/mL, due largely to the four bromine atoms ...
It seems apparent that the translational characteristics of research in the Clinical Medicine sub-panel are reflected in the very strong performance of its unit submissions in generating high-quality impacts. Interestingly, two unit submissions had their entire impact submissions assessed as 4*, despite also being amongst those unit submissions with the lowest proportion of scientific outputs rated as 4*. One of these (University of Dundee) submitted 194 journal articles, a patent and six case studies, which provided evidence of varied and impressive impacts, including breakthroughs in cardiac clinic trial procedures and genetic causes of atopic diseases, along with a new approach to drug and chemical safety.. The General Engineering sub-panel has one of the strongest correlations between 4* outputs and impacts, yet a significant number of unit submissions in this sub-panel had their impact case studies assessed as not having any 4* impact. A couple of unit submissions generated substantial 4* ...

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 ...

Under pressure from the chemical industry, the Environmental Protection Agency has dismissed an outspoken scientist who chaired a federal panel responsible for helping the agency determine the dangers of a flame retardant widely used in electronic equipment.. Toxicologist Deborah Rice was appointed chair of an EPA scientific panel reviewing the chemical a year ago. Federal records show she was removed from the panel in August after the American Chemistry Council, the lobbying group for chemical manufacturers, complained to a top-ranking EPA official that she was biased.. The chemical, a brominated compound known as deca, is used in high volumes worldwide, largely in the plastic housings of television sets.. Rice, an award-winning former EPA scientist who now works at the Maine Department of Health and Human Services, has studied low doses of deca and reported neurological effects in lab animals. Last February, around the time the EPA panel was convened, Rice testified before the Maine ...

An MSDS is a Material Safety Data Sheet, a document which summarizes the purpose, hazards, and other information about a substance or material. Different government jurisdictions and industries have differing MSDS requirements. In the interests of public and worker safety, however, their MSDS libraries are frequently shared. This category contains sites that link directly to MSDS information, or which provide directories, search engines, or other gateways related to chemical safety or MSDS information.
Reactive Chemicals: The US Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB) gave OSHA a big thumbs down for refusing to act on the CSBs two year-old recommendation that OSHA revise its Process Safety Management standard to include reactive chemicals. The CSB recommendation was based on a study showing that reactive chemical incidents had led to 167 serious accidents over 20 years, causing 108 fatalities and hundreds of millions of dollars in property damage. Instead of revising the standard, OSHA formed an industry alliance and put more information on its website. The CSB was not amused, calling OSHAs half-way measures an "Unacceptable Response ...

The Nickel industry accepted the outcome of the Risk Assessment and Risk Reduction Strategy. The Nickel Institute and its colleagues at NiPERA have, since the conclusions were published by the European Commission, been actively addressing all of the conclusions and recommendations. Most of these have by now been addressed or are being finalised in the context of specific environmental standards reviews. The work to bring about closure of some of the conclusions (in particular with respect to the environment) has led to extensive new research on metal interaction with the environment being undertaken and published. Equally, the industry has pursued active product management in order to reduce the risk of impacts for sensitive consumer groups coming into contact with nickel. Finally, results of the risk assessment have been fed directly into the work of the Institute and the Nickel Consortia for the preparation of the Chemical Safety Reports (CSRs) for nickel metal and 11 other substances and ...
The Environmental Protection Agency has issued a plan for implementing the new responsibilities conferred upon it by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, which effected the first significant overhaul of the Toxic Substances Control Act since its enactment in 1976. Highlights of this plan include the following.. New Chemicals. Effective June 22, the law requires the EPA to review and make an affirmative determination on all premanufacture notices and significant new use notices before manufacturing can commence. The EPAs goal is to meet the applicable deadlines. For companies that submitted PMNs prior to June 22 that are currently undergoing review, the EPA will make every effort to complete its review and make a determination within the remaining time under the original deadline. However, as a legal matter, the new law effectively resets the 90-day review period.. Risk Assessments. For chemicals with risk assessments completed prior to June 22 the EPA may publish ...

Eggs have been found to be sensitive indicators of persistent organic pollutant (POP) contamination in soils or dust and are an important exposure pathway from soil pollution to humans, and eggs from contaminated areas can readily lead to exposures with exceeding thresholds for the protection of human health (Van Eijkeren, Zeilmaker et al. 2006, Hoogenboom, ten Dam et al. 2014, Piskorska-Pliszczynska, Mikolajczyk et al. 2014). Chickens and eggs might therefore be ideal "active samplers" and indicator species for evaluation of the level of contamination of sampled areas by POPs, particularly by dioxins (PCDD/Fs) and PCBs. Based on this assumption, we have chosen sampling of free range chicken eggs and their analyses for selected POPs as one of the monitoring tools within the project Strengthening the capacity of pollution victims and civil society organizations to increase chemical safety in China.. The data and analyses of free range chicken eggs discussed in this report were obtained during ...

April 19, 2012. Washington, DC, April 19, 2012 - The U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) announced today that its investigation into the April 20, 2010 Macondo well blowout, explosion and fire in the Gulf of Mexico is progressing, with two interim reports with findings and recommendations to be released this year. A final report is expected to be completed in early 2013.. Investigation findings to date indicate a need for companies and regulators to institute more rigorous accident prevention programs similar to those in use overseas. The CSB announcement was made approaching the second anniversary of the tragedy, which took eleven lives and caused the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history,. Process safety regulations and standards utilized by oil companies in refineries and process plants in the continental U.S. have a stronger major accident prevention focus, CSB investigators have determined. Unlike the U.S. offshore regulatory system, the "onshore" process safety requirements are more ...
HOUSTON) - Authorities launched a controlled burn Sunday at a chemical plant damaged by Harvey, sending small flames and gray smoke into the sky, and said the highly unstable compounds that had exploded earlier needed to be neutralized.. Officials said the "proactive measures" to ignite the six remaining trailers at the Arkema plant in Crosby, outside Houston, wouldnt pose any additional risk to the community. People living within a mile and a half of the site are still evacuated.. Small flames burning in charred structures could be seen at the plant, with a limited amount of light gray smoke. John Rull, who lives close by, told the Houston Chronicle he heard four booms. He said the explosions were louder than one he heard Friday when two containers burned and that there was much more smoke.. Sam Mannan, a chemical safety expert at Texas A&M University, said the latest burn was emitting gray smoke, which indicated a more complete burn with fewer harmful chemicals remaining..

Four types of dust samples and nine categories of locally produced staple foods were collected from a mega e-waste recycling industrial park and its surrounding regions, and simultaneously analyzed for short-chain and medium-chain chlorinated paraffins (CPs) to estimate dust and dietary exposure and their combined effects on occupational workers and local residents. All samples related to e-waste activities contained considerably high concentrations of CPs. The highest dust concentration was found in e-waste workshops. CPs were highly accumulated in local plant and animal origin foods, most markedly in fish, vegetables, and rice. The main contribution to CP intake under a median exposure scenario was from the diet, and vegetables, fish, and rice were the three largest dietary intake sources. Only the combined dust and food exposure from the present study has approached or even exceeded the highest tolerable daily intake (TDI) set up by the International Program on Chemical Safety (IPCS). ...

A federal investigation into the explosion at Exxon Mobils Torrance refinery last year found multiple safety-management problems that led to the incident and endangered the lives of "many community members.". The U.S. Chemical Safety Board released part of its findings Wednesday from the investigation into last Februarys Torrance refinery explosion, which has been a major contributor to high gasoline prices in the Los Angeles area.. The Chemical Safety Board said Exxon Mobil hasnt complied with requests for information about a near-miss incident during the Feb. 18 explosion. To date, the oversight agency said it has "no or incomplete responses to 49% of its subpoena requests.". The explosion injured workers and dispersed large quantities of dust up to a mile away from the plant. In addition, investigators said large pieces of debris from the explosion hit other equipment at the facility while narrowly missing a tank containing tens of thousands of pounds of hydrofluoric acid. Had the debris ...
An effort in Congress to modernize a patchwork system of state and federal laws governing chemical safety is generating debate between a bipartisan group of state legislators who say the update would rob states of the ability to regulate sometimes toxic substances within their own borders and businesses who say they need regulatory certainty to grow jobs and the economy.". "In a letter sent to the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee chairman and the ranking member, Reps. John Shimkus (R-Ill.) and Paul Tonko (D-N.Y.), the National Conference of State Legislators said a draft version of the Chemicals in Commerce Act would take authority to regulate chemicals out of the hands of states and localities. Regulation would be entirely up to the Environmental Protection Agency.. Legislators are particularly concerned with sections that would update rules by which chemical manufacturers would notify the EPA of research on their products and document that science ...
