JOEH Publishes Supplement on Occupational Exposure Limits

The December issue of the journal includes a supplement addressing issues tied to the science of OELs.

The December 2015 issue of AIHA's Journal of Occupational and Environmental Hygiene(JOEH) includes a supplement that addresses issues related to the science of setting occupational exposure limits (OELs). Ten articles in it are the result of collaborations between NIOSH, TERA (Toxicology Excellence for Risk Assessment, located at the University of Cincinnati), and other organizations.

The following articles are included in the supplement:

  • State-of-the-Science: The Evolution of Occupational Exposure Limit Derivation and Application
  • Historical Context and Recent Advances in Exposure-Response Estimation for Deriving Occupational Exposure Limits
  • Advances in Inhalation Dosimetry Models and Methods for Occupational Risk Assessment and Exposure Limit Derivation
  • Systems Biology and Biomarkers of Early Effects for Occupational Exposure Limit Setting
  • The Scientific Basis of Uncertainty Factors Used in Setting Occupational Exposure Limits
  • Considerations for Using Genetic and Epigenetic Information in Occupational Health Risk Assessment and Standard Setting
  • Setting Occupational Exposure Limits for Chemical Allergens-Understanding the Challenges
  • Exposure Estimation and Interpretation of Occupational Risk: Enhanced Information for the Occupational Risk Manager
  • Aggregate Exposure and Cumulative Risk Assessment-Integrating Occupational and Non-occupational Risk Factors
  • The Global Landscape of Occupational Exposure Limits-Implementation of Harmonization Principles to Guide Limit Selection

"JOEH and its predecessor journals were traditionally geared toward worker exposures to harmful agents," said JOEH Editor in Chief Mark Nicas, Ph.D., CIH. "Although the workplace remains our primary focus, JOEH seeks to publish studies about adverse exposures involving consumers-the Brazilian Blowout product-and about non-traditional topics such as the adult film industry. The principles of exposure science, a specialty of the occupational hygiene profession, clearly apply beyond the workplace. By broadening the JOEH focus, we hope to enhance our visibility among the general public and related technical professions."
