Scientist Warns Industry Not to Ignore Potential Health Threat to Pharmacy Workers
Date:11/10/2008

our strong recommendation is that the issue needs to be studied by federal regulatory agencies. As reported by the publication Inside OSHA on October 27, 2008, "A NIOSH official says that he believes pharmacists are being exposed to harmful particles." He further stated, "The agency advises against using technology that produces any type of particulate that could be inhaled."

The official described our study as "fairly straightforward" and said that there is concern that drugs involved were "not meant to be inhaled."

Clearly, federal regulatory agencies must assess risk and set guidelines for these types of machines and establish procedures to monitor the health impact on pharmacy workers when they are used.

The previous press release, the executive summary and the full study are available for review.
