Dispensing toxic, carcinogenic, mutagenic, or reproductive toxicants is all part of the pharmaceutical manufacturing process. To make the process safer, to reduce occupational chemical exposure and protect the health of their employees, the team at Douglas Pharmaceuticals undertook the Isolator Project. After much consultation and trials with multiple stakeholders, a custom designed, large leak-proof enclosure namely an isolator was procured. Miriska Gerber will outline the background to the project, the purpose, the process, and the evidence the initiative has been successful.

Managing work-related health often receives less focus and resources than managing workplace safety, but the harm is real with over 600 to 900 deaths a year from ill health caused by work exposure. Keeping workers healthy is as important as keeping them safe.
Safeguard’s HealthRISK Conference is designed for people who feel comfortable dealing with safety but who are more apprehensive about tackling health.
The conference aims to provide attendees with the tools they need to manage health like safety and to provide a better understanding of some of the key health risks that affect New Zealand workplaces.
Please use the Q&A function on the right to send through your questions to the MC.
We hope you enjoy the conference.
