Concerns for the “Forever Chemicals,” Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances have grown exponentially over the past decade resulting in a recent push for new studies around risk, exposures and remediation legislation. This emerging hazard has become a focus of EHS professionals as new data and policies are arising. PFAS exposures can occur at the work place (in manufacturing), in every day products, as well as in the environment. PFAS compounds accumulate in the environment and in the human body, so understanding these chemicals and how to mitigate human and environmental damage is imperative for an overall EHS program.
