OSHA Plan To Protect Workers Exposed To Isocyanates

Focus on workplaces in general, construction and maritime industries that use isocyanate compounds in an effort to reduce occupational illnesses and deaths.

OSHA recently announced a new National Emphasis Program to protect workers from the serious health effects from occupational exposure to isocyanates.

Through this NEP, OSHA will focus on workplaces in general, construction and maritime industries that use isocyanate compounds in an effort to reduce occupational illnesses and deaths.

These chemicals can cause occupational asthma, irritation of the skin, eyes, nose and throat, and cancer and other conditions that have proved fatal in some cases. See the news release for more information.
