OSHA Announces a New Chemical Exposure Initiative

You might have missed it given all of the various news items about Ebola and what is happening with the Center for Disease Control - but OSHA has announced a new initiative regarding the evaluation of permissible exposure limits (PELs) in the work place.  

According to the OSHA's press release, over 95% of the current OSHA PEL's have not been updated since the initial acceptance of the PEL in 1971.  Additionally, the current list covers fewer than 500 chemicals. On October 10, a Request for Information was published in the Federal Register regarding the details of this initiative.  Apparently, OSHA has begun this activity as part of Executive Order 13650 - Improving Chemical Facility Safety and Security.

In this Request for Information, OSHA is seeking responses on a variety of approaches to improve the PELs as well as address potential measures that would not require occupational exposure limits (OELs).  OSHA is requesting responses to be submitted by April 8, 2015.
