A screening method for occupational reproductive health risk
The purpose of this study was to provide a reproductive health risk assessment for a large number of chemicals (213). Searching the literature for no observed adverse effect levels and lowest observed adverse effect levels for the reproductive toxicants, occupational reproductive guidelines (ORGs) were developed in the dose-response evaluation step. The majority of the chemicals (85%) have had a screening level dose-response assessment completed. Of these, 13% are greater than or equal to a threshold limit value (TLV). The remaining 87% do not have a TLV or ORGs below the TLV.

Substances and preparations dangerous for the environment
This final report from a Nordic Working Group reviews a proposal for a system of classification, labelling and safety data sheets for substances and preparations dangerous for the environment. The system should be applicable to all chemical products, including pesticides, but not to products covered by other special legislation, such as medicines and foodstuffs. Substances are classified as dangerous if they meet one or more of 4 conditions, and preparations if they contain 1% or more of a dangerous substance. Environmental hazard labels should bear a hazard symbol, risk and safety phrases and details of composition. Details are given of the data to be included on a safety data sheet.

Standard setting and protection of human health and safety
Human health and safety are determined by the behaviour and performance of the individual or of a piece of equipment, under the prevailing conditions. Setting health or safety standards, which will define a set of conditions to provide protection, requires consideration of many factors, including the level of protection required and the collection and assessment of factual information. The purpose of the paper is to identify and discuss the elements of the standard-setting process and the major issues likely to be associated with it. Occupational exposure values and other initiatives to provide protection of human health from the potential effects of chemicals in Canada are reviewed in the context of recent initiatives and current pressures for change.
