Benzene Legislation Introduction

ION Science has published a new FREE to download Guide; An Introduction to Benzene Exposure Legislation. The Guide is the second in our series, to inform you that benzene exposure limits are becoming tighter and the need to understand how the changes affect your safety and your business.

 

In our Guide you will find out about:

  • Occupational exposure limits for benzene
  • Overview of existing legislation
  • Existing limits of exposure
  • What are your options for measuring exposure within the workplace
  • Potential future changes in legislation

Some highly dangerous substances, such as asbestos, are now banned or under strict control. However, other harmful substances are still widely used, and legislation is in place to ensure that the risks associated with them are properly managed. So whatever your thoughts on BREXIT and the concerns for the future of the UK’s health and safety legislation, there is no denying that the EU has brought forward essential legislation relating to so-called physical and chemical agents in the workplace over the last two decades.

Indeed the Chemical Agents Directive2 is ‘celebrating’ its 20th anniversary during 2018. In the UK it was implemented as the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 and similarly across the EU which has been summarised by EU-OSHA3.
