    Recommendations for a phosgene standard designed to protect the health and safety of workers up to a 10-hour workday, 40-hour workweek over a working lifetime. Compliance with the standard should prevent adverse effects of phosgene on the health and safety of workers. Occupational exposure to phosgene (75445) is defined as exposure above half the recommended time-weighted average environmental limit. Topics covered include: concentration, sampling and analysis of phosgene in the workplace air; annual medical examination of occupationally exposed workers; personal protective equipment and clothing; informing employees of phosgene hazards; work practices; sanitation practices; biological effects of exposure according to epidemiology, animal toxicity, carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, and teratogenicity data; environmental concentrations and engineering controls.
