This is a topic of prevailing interest to the oil and gas industry. The Institute of Petroleum has arranged a number of workshops, over the years, to debate the latest concerns and findings regarding the health effects of benzene exposure. This new Report summarises the debate which took place at the most recent of these workshops, held on 22nd October 2002.
The workshop was convened to discuss a number of new epidemiological findings, which are in the process of being submitted for publication in peer-reviewed medical literature. The new Report, which contains the workshop presentations and ensuing discussion, will enable researchers involved in these studies to compare and contrast the new findings.
The Report contains presentations from an international body of participants, including experts from the Netherlands, from Australia, from the USA, and from the Universities of Birmingham, Leeds, Oklahoma and Pittsburgh.
The Report is designed to assist the industry in continuing to provide a safe working environment for its employees and appropriate instructions for the safe handling of its products.
Essential reading for safety managers, occupational physicians and health advisors to the industry.
