The aviation environment has always contained many toxic materials and products. With the evolution of more advanced aircraft propulsion mechanisms, specialised aircraft material development and associated maintenance activities, there has been a major increase in the potential toxic hazards associated with these systems. The threat of toxic exposure covers the entire spectrum of low-level continuous or intermittent to high-level brief accidental or unavoidable exposures. However, the protection of the crew and passengers is not the only concern in dealing with the toxic hazards in aviation. Responsibilities include research to address the biomedical aspects of occupational health and safety standards, toxic substances, environmental impact criteria and classification of transportation.
