IOMC TOOLBOX Para la toma de decisiones en la gestión de productos químicos.

The IOMC Internet-based Toolbox for Decision Making in Chemicals Management (IOMC Toolbox) is aimed at countries who wish to address specific national issues regarding chemicals management.

The IOMC Toolbox is a problem solving tool that enables countries to identify the most appropriate and efficient national actions to address specific national problems related to chemicals management.

The toolbox identifies the available IOMC resources that will help the country address the identified national problem(s) or objectives. Special focus is given to identifying simple cost effective solutions to national chemicals management issues.

Este esquema de gestión ayuda a proteger la salud de los trabajadores y del público, así como el medio ambiente y la propiedad, al reducir la probabilidad de que ocurran accidentes y limitar las consecuencias si ocurre uno.

El GHS aborda la clasificación de sustancias químicas por tipos de peligro y propone elementos armonizados de comunicación de peligros, incluidas etiquetas y fichas de datos de seguridad.

La mejora de la salud y la seguridad en el trabajo previene o reduce la incidencia de enfermedades y lesiones inducidas por productos químicos en el trabajo y, en consecuencia, mejora la protección del público en general y del medio ambiente.

Un RETC es una base de datos o inventario de acceso público de sustancias químicas o contaminantes liberados en el aire, el agua y el suelo y transferidos fuera del sitio para su tratamiento. Reúne información sobre qué sustancias químicas se liberan, dónde, en qué cantidad y por quién.

Controlar qué pesticidas se pueden usar ayuda a evitar efectos adversos en la salud humana y en el medio ambiente. Este esquema cubre el ciclo de vida de los plaguicidas, desde la producción hasta el registro, distribución, uso y eliminación.

La mejora de la salud y la seguridad en el trabajo previene o reduce la incidencia de enfermedades y lesiones en el trabajo inducidas por sustancias químicas y, en consecuencia, mejora la protección del público en general y del medio ambiente.

Se proporcionan herramientas e información organizadas por temas de mayor relevancia para la salud pública, la salud ambiental y los aspectos médicos de la evaluación y gestión de los riesgos químicos y los impactos de los productos químicos. Las herramientas también están organizadas por áreas de acción del programa de trabajo sobre productos químicos.

Las Mejores Técnicas Disponibles (BAT) y conceptos similares constituyen elementos esenciales para establecer valores límite de emisión y otras condiciones de permisos para emisiones industriales en muchos países del mundo.

The FAO Pesticide Registration Toolkit is a decision-support system for pesticide registrars in developing countries. It will assist registrars in the evaluation and authorization of pesticides. The Toolkit can serve as a web-based registration handbook intended for day-to-day use. It also links to pesticide-specific information sources such as registrations in other countries, scientific reviews, hazard classifications, labels, MRLs, and pesticide properties.

This toolkit gives access to practical tools on environmental risk assessment of chemicals. It describes the general work flow of environmental risk assessment and provides examples of risk assessment. This toolkit also provides links to relevant tools developed by OECD and member countries that can be used in each step. The examples provide a roadmap of the process, showing the steps involved in each case and the tools which were used.

The Chemical Leasing Toolkit provides guidelines, materials, best practice case studies, and lessons learned from 10 years of work at UNIDO’s Global Chemical Leasing Programme. The Toolkit enables users to systematically kick-start the implementation of Chemical Leasing at the company level. It also supports policymakers in understanding how best to approach Chemical Leasing in the policy arena.

The Toolkit enables manufacturers and industrial users of chemicals, and consultants to identify chemicals management hotspots and to implement innovations that provide customers value and increase revenue, while providing environmental benefits and protecting the health of workers and society. The Toolkit consists of a company guide that provides a methodological approach in the form of six phases, supplemented by technical resources, sector guidelines, and case studies.

The toolkit provides materials to deepen the understanding of Green Chemistry, including origins, technologies and how it drives environmental and economic goals for societal benefits. The toolkit aims to transform the trainees into Green Chemistry facilitators who will be able to disseminate Green Chemistry to their networks by using practical and tangible examples that encourage the change. It was developed under the Global Green Chemistry Initiative – a project led by UNIDO in partnership with the Center for Green Chemistry and Green Engineering at Yale University.

The eToolkit is an interactive web-application based on the WHO Human Health Risk Assessment Toolkit: Chemical Hazards. Users are provided with web-based templates of roadmaps for conducting human health risk assessments. While being led through a step-by-step risk assessment process, users are provided with background information and are able to document the information they have gathered and the conclusions they have drawn in electronic templates. The toolkit is temporarily in maintenance.

This webinar will provide an overview of the Environmental Risk Assessment Toolkit and redesigned IOMC Toolbox, followed by practical examples of risk assessment steps in three particular cases: (i) textile dye, (ii) pesticide and (iii) environmental quality standard setting.

Background

The Environment, Health and Safety Division of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) assists countries in developing and implementing policies and instruments to strengthen national chemicals management, while protecting human health and the environment.

In the framework of developing and harmonising methods for assessing risk to human health and the environment, including methodologies for hazard and exposure assessment, the Environmental Risk Assessment (ERA) Toolkit gives to interested countries and users access to practical tools on environmental risk assessment of chemicals. The Toolkit describes the general work flow of environmental risk assessment and provides examples as well.  Links to relevant tools developed by OECD and member countries are also provided.

ORGANIZER: World Health Organization, Department of Environment, Climate Change and Health
TARGET AUDIENCE: Environmental health decision-makers and public health, environmental and
other professionals with a role in assessing and managing human health risks associated with chemical
exposures.
Participants of the webinar will learn about the important role of human health risk assessment in
informing environmental health decision-making including regulatory action, responses to chemical
incidents and management of poisonings.
Participants will be introduced to the recently revised and published WHO human health risk
assessment toolkit: chemical hazards which provides users with the guidance to identify, acquire
and use the information needed to assess chemical hazards, exposures and the corresponding
health risks in their given health risk assessment contexts at local and/or national levels
https://apps.who.int/iris/handle/10665/350206.
Participants will hear about experiences from developing countries to undertake human health risk
assessment in low resource settings and the usefulness of the WHO human health risk assessment
toolkit: chemical hazards.
Participants will be introduced to the WHO Chemical Risk Assessment Network Community of Trainers
(CoT) which provides a forum to trainers and those who would like to become trainers to share
experiences in the teaching and training on human health risk assessment.
