A New Beryllium Standard
A proposal to set a lower exposure standard for beryllium and beryllium-containing materials will affect how the plastics industry handles and processes these materials.

Partnering Up for Safety
To better protect industry workers, a proposal was issued in August by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) that would set a new, lower exposure standard specifically for beryllium and beryllium-containing materials. The proposed beryllium standard is consistent with the Model Beryllium Standard and contains the key elements of Materion’s Beryllium Worker Protection Model (BWPM) which focuses on the control of multiple potential exposure pathways.
