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.
