Be Ready for Possible Changes to Your Hazardous Med Policy
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is proposing big changes to its hazardous med list.
We're used to the NIOSH list being divided into three tables of hazardous meds...Table 1 for antineoplastics, Table 2 for NON-antineoplastics, and Table 3 for meds primarily with reproductive risks.
But these tables have caused confusion about true risk. For example, some antineoplastics aren't cytotoxic.
