Workplace Safety & Health Topics: NIOSH Evaluation of its Cancer and REL Policies

http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/cancer/policy.html?s_cid=3ni7d2fb072720110230pm

NIOSH published a final document entitled " Current Intelligence Bulletin 68: NIOSH Chemical Carcinogen Policy " on December 27, 2016. Underlying this policy is the recognition that there is no safe level of exposure to a carcinogen, and therefore that reduction of worker exposure to chemical carcinogens as much as possible through elimination or substitution and engineering controls is the primary way to prevent occupational cancer.

OSHA Safety and Health Topics: Carcinogens

http://www.osha.gov/SLTC/carcinogens/index.html

Carcinogens are agents that can cause cancer. In industry, there are many potential exposures to carcinogens. Generally, workplace exposures are considered to be at higher levels than for public exposures. Material safety data sheets (MSDSs) should always contain an indication of carcinogenic potential.

National Toxicology Program - 12th Report on Carcinogens

http://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/?objectid=03C9AF75-E1BF-FF40-DBA9EC0928DF8B15

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius released the 12th Report on Carcinogens on June 10, 2011. The Report on Carcinogens (RoC) is a congressionally mandated, science-based, public health document that is prepared for the HHS Secretary by the National Toxicology Program. The report identifies agents, substances, mixtures, and exposure circumstances that are known or reasonably anticipated to cause cancer in humans.

Workplace Safety & Health Topics: NIOSH Evaluation of its Cancer and REL Policies

http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/cancer/policy.html?s_cid=3ni7d2fb072720110230pm

NIOSH is currently reviewing its cancer (carcinogen) and related Recommended Exposure Limit (REL) to ensure that they reflect current scientific and risk management practices. A Federal Register notice will be published describing the review process and requesting comments and information from the public and interested stakeholders.
