OSHA has issued a request for information (RFI) seeking employer input on permissible exposure limits for hazardous chemicals, along with chemical management methods to promote workplace safety. It’s part of the agency’s ongoing review to identify “more effective and efficient approaches” for managing chemical exposures at work.

OSHA is looking for employer perspectives on potential changes to “existing processes, along with potential new sources of data and alternative approaches” for improving worker safety. “Many of our chemical exposure standards are dangerously out of date and do not adequately protect workers,” said Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Dr. David Michaels.
