  • Description:
    The criteria and the recommended standard based thereon prepared to meet the need for preventing occupational disease or injury arising from exposure to organotins. The proposed standard applies only to workplace exposure to organotins arising from the processing, manufacture, or use of the substances as applicable under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, and is intended to protect against the development of systemic toxic effects and local effects on the eyes and skin. The major concern in occupational exposure to organotins is the potential for liver, kidney, pulmonary, and central nervous system damage at concentrations above determined as a time weighted average for up to a 10 hour work shift in a 40 hour workweek. Dermatitis, irritation of the eyes, and irritation of the upper and lower respiratory tract are associated with organotins.
