Cardno ChemRisk scientists recently published History of Knowledge and Evolution of Occupational Health and Regulatory Aspects of Asbestos Exposure Science: 1900-1975" in the Critical Reviews in Toxicology journal.  The article provides a comprehensive review regarding the evolution of the foundation of occupational medicine and industrial hygiene knowledge with respect to asbestos and its risks from the early 1900s until the early-to-mid 1970s. In this review, we present the decisions, insights, challenges, and hallmark scientific discoveries that had the greatest impact on the historical actions of industrial hygienists in characterizing asbestos exposure and risk.

Keller and Heckman LLP and Cardno ChemRisk present a webinar series on the changes to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) resulting from the June 22, 2016 passage of the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (Lautenberg Act).

Next Week’s Topic: The Chemical Prioritization Rule and Its Implications

This month we will discuss the Chemical Prioritization Rule proposed on January 17, 2017 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Section 6(b)(1)(A) of TSCA now requires EPA to promulgate procedures for prioritizing chemicals for risk evaluations, which must include the criteria for high-priority and low-priority chemical designations. The proposal indicates that EPA is setting a low bar for high-priority designations and that EPA anticipates designating a large number of chemical substances as high-priority. During this webinar we will discuss:

      EPA’s use of evaluation criteria from the Work Plan Chemicals Program;

      A Work Plan Chemical case study;

      The prioritization process and timeline;

      Uses subject to review;

      Preemption implications;

      Predicting future chemicals for prioritization; and

      What manufacturers should do.

Registration for this program is complimentary, but required. Click here to register today.

Cardno ChemRisk and Reed Smith have teamed up again to provide another 3D Printing Technical Symposium entitled Answers to Address Environment, Health, Safety, and Risk questions. The symposium will be held on December 8, 2016 as a webcast only. You can register for this free webcast presentation here. The stellar panel of consultants, and academic, industry, and attorney speakers is back to present on different aspects of 3D printing, specifically: potential hazard consideration, designing targeted exposure and risk assessment strategies, managing environmental risk and liabilities, relevant global and local environmental safety regulations, and results of environmental testing for nanoparticles, VOCs and inorganic gas emissions. This is another exciting opportunity for EHS professionals, 3D printing industry stakeholders and users, and legal professionals.
