Hazards and Solutions

OSHA and NIOSH recommend that employers protect workers exposed to flavorings by:

  • Assessing exposures,
  • Implementing engineering controls and work practices,
  • Providing personal protective equipment, including respirators if needed,
  • Offering medical monitoring that includes lung function testing, and
  • Training employees

For detailed discussions about topics such as engineering controls, respiratory protection, and medical monitoring see:

Employers who need help developing a workplace health and safety program should refer to OSHA's On-site Consultation webpage. It provides information and guidance on requesting assistance from OSHA's Consultation Program.
