Interaction amongst these fields is essential in dealing with workplace problems, making it a truly multidisciplinary endeavour. Chemicals are found in most workplaces, and where such chemicals have hazards they require careful attention from the OHS practitioner to avoid overt acute poisoning from single or short-term repeated exposures, as well as the more insidious adverse health consequences from longer term repeated exposures. Chemicals may also damage the workplace or harm the environment.

Furthermore, other data may be used, such as those from cells relating to the genotoxic effects of the chemical in question. It is also important that data relating to the mechanism of toxicity are considered when making conclusions. The appropriateness of the study and quality of the data are other important factors that must not be overlooked. Overall, all the available information must be considered in order to arrive at an acceptable value for the exposure standard. Occupational Toxicology 10 The process for setting exposure standards for workplace chemicals has been somewhat different to that used for chemicals found in other settings over the last 50 years or so.
