Frequently asked questions

A partnership between the following organizations:

1.) National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)

2.) Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)

3.) US Pharmacopeial Convention (USP)

USP provides a peer reviewed list of drugs they consider hazardous. NIOSH confirms the list and provides it to the public. OSHA helps ensure employers are adequately protecting their employees from occupational exposure.

As an organization, you will have to compare your formulary (inventory) against the hazardous drug list published by NIOSH. 

If you are handling or administering any drug that is on the NIOSH list, then you should be informing your employees of the risk and offering them the correct training and PPE.
