Relaunching the Pollution Prevention Options Assessment System (P2OASys) Tool for TUR Planners
January 8, 2018, Time: 11 am-noon CST
TURI developed the Pollution Prevention Options Assessment System (P2OASys) tool to help companies determine whether the toxics use reduction (TUR) options they are considering improve upon their existing process when looking at environmental, health and safety topics. By using P2OASys, unforeseen negative environmental, worker or public health impacts may be identified prior to adopting the proposed changes.
Potential hazards posed by current and alternative processes identified during the TUR planning process are compared using data endpoints for eight main categories that encompass chemical, physical, psychological and environmental hazards.
Using both quantitative and qualitative data input, the tool has be set up to rate each category based on endpoints that correlate with values, key phrases, Global Harmonizing System (GHS) classifications, and other government agencies designations.
