As our world of work is continuously evolving, so are the exposures to new chemicals that are entering our workplaces. Nanotechnology is a great example; it is entering our workplaces. If you don't have a broad definition, as we currently have, how would the workplace parties be able to rely on the structure for identifying it consistently so that everyone has the same understanding?
By the shift in this new definition, making it more streamlined—I don't know what “streamlined” actually means—in our belief, you are limiting what the focus will be on the different exposures, especially cancer-causing substances in the workplace, which are becoming more and more abundant.
When we're looking at changes to the global harmonization system and the safety data sheet information that we'll be giving to our members to decipher, how is that going to be helping with the new streamlined definition and all the tools that are available to the workplace parties to mitigate exposures to danger?
