purging agent (methyl methacrylate)
Dentures are often made from Methy methacrylate causing problems in dental technicians. Nail extensions can also cause problems in nail bars. Bone cement (for joining bone with artificial implants such as hip replacements) is another source of exposure.
The Oasys Audit scheme started midway through 2010 and collects agents typed in through the Oasys program. The years before 2010 show old data entered during 2010 or later and are likely to have many fewer notifications. We expect Oasys to become more widely adopted as time goes by so increasing notifications does not necessarily mean an increasing problem.
