The EPA allows safer products to carry the Design for the Environment (DfE) label. This mark enables consumers to quickly identify and choose products that can help protect the environment and are safer for families. To support this effort, the EPA provides a Design for the Environment Health and Safety Management Best Practices Checklist

A presentation given to The University of Alabama-Birmingham on the ASSE's Prevention Through Design standard(PTD/Z590).
This standard focuses specifically on the avoidance, elimination, reduction and control of occupational safety and health hazards and risks in the design and redesign process.
Prevention through design (PTD) efforts focus on improving working conditions. Reasons that employers adopt PTD design solutions vary substantially. A business case can show what the PTD solution has to offer a company.
NIOSH-sponsored research has produced a model program to help organizations incorporate PTD methods into design/ redesign processes. Each element of this model program is described and supported by examples.
The Body of Knowledge project is dedicated to creating a living reference that represents the collective knowledge of the Safety, Health and Environmental profession. While the preliminary work has begun, there is still more to do. The purpose of this website is to introduce subject areas that will eventually be part of the Body of Knowledge, and to gather feedback on the future direction, and ongoing assessment of what needs to be completed.
Contribute your knowledge and be a part of something big.
