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.
