International OEL Issues and Activities
Occupational Exposure Limits (OELs) have been established for airborne workplace chemicals by multiple regulatory and authoritative organizations around the world for well over 60 years now. With the changing regulatory arena, shifting centers of manufacturing growth, and move towards a more global view on occupational hygiene issues, it is important for the Occupational Hygiene profession to understand the current and growing issues impacting the continued viability of OEL’s in our professional practice .
IOHA has created this space on our webpage to provide information on the issues and stimulate the discussion of approaches and solutions to the issues before the profession. If you wish to add information to this space please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
