    NIOSH recommendations for an occupational exposure standard for coke oven emissions include: operating procedures, medical examinations, posting areas near coke ovens, respiratory protection, and informing employees of coke oven emission hazards. Epidemiological evidence demonstrates that workers exposed to the products of the combustion or distillation of bituminous coal are at increased risk of cancer at many sites. Information is given on the biologic effects of exposure, environmental data, and respirator use.
