Abstract
OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH HAZARDS IN THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY

Dr. Sonali P. Mahaparale* and Shruti Vijay Hagawane

ABSTRACT

The rate of globalization has contributed to an increase in employment in the informal sector, usually characterized by flexibility, hazardous and precarious work, which poses a major risk to the well- workers. The pharmaceutical industry plays an important role in healthcare systems around the world engaged in the discovery, development, manufacture, and marketing of medicinal products for human as well as animal health. Formulation and development of a new dosage form involve ingredients and APIs, including various corrosive and irritant agents. Like acid- oxidizing and reducing agents, etc. In recent years, the pharmaceutical industry has come to occupy a unique position on the issues of industrial hygiene and toxicology. The government and stakeholders should, therefore, develop an occupational health and safety system and encourage industry to reduce the level of hazards associated with their employment. Musculoskeletal disorder is one of the occupational health hazards seen in the pharmaceutical industry.

Keywords: Hazards, OSHA, GHS, NIOSH, ACGIH.
