The Beryllium Science and Technology Association (BeST) is committed to prioritizing worker safety.Be Responsible is a voluntary product stewardship programme launched in March 2017 by the Beryllium Industry, through BeST, in an effort to advance the science of beryllium health and safety as well as protect beryllium workers, family members and the general public.
Substantial uncontrolled workplace exposure to beryllium can constitute a potential health risk to employees when no protective measures are guaranteed. By implementing the Be Responsible programme, the potential health risks in places of employment and in other activities involving beryllium manufacturing and use are concretely and effectively reduced.
The program aims to secure a greater risk reduction for workers by providing technical assistance to small businesses that may not have great resources.
