hazards of Estradiol to potentially exposed workers.
The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has setstandards for Good Manufacturing Practices for Drugs and The New Jersey Right to Know Act requires most employers to Pharmaceuticals. These should be followed for your label chemicals in the workplace and requires public employers protection as well as product quality. See the FDA to provide their employees with information and training concerning chemical hazards and controls. The federal OSHAHazard Communication Standard, 1910.1200, requires privateemployers to provide similar training and information to theiremployees.
Exposure to hazardous substances should be routinelyevaluated. This may include collecting personal and area airsamples. You can obtain copies of sampling results fromyour employer. You have a legal right to this informationunder OSHA 1910.1020.
