|Hazard Assessment: Building Blocks of Compliance and Proactive Product Stewardship|
|Regulatory agencies and companies are increasingly committed to characterizing and communicating chemical hazards to workers and the public. Hazard assessment underlies several important compliance actions, including generation health-protective safety data sheets, protection of confidential business information, and various government submissions . Hazard assessment is also key for a company’s efforts to “green” supply chains and develop internal standards that limit human health and environmental risks. While building and maintaining a hazard assessment program requires significant toxicological, chemistry, and IT resources, such programs can ensure that company stakeholders make decisions based on a consistent set of information. During this session, obstacles encountered when arriving at sound hazard conclusions, methods of conducting a robust hazard management program, and communicating consistent, supportable hazard information internally and to the public will be discussed. Real-world examples of compliance challenges will be used, focused on evaluation and documentation approaches when only conflicting or incomplete chemical information is available.
