  • Description:
    According to the recommended standard compiled by NIOSH, occupational exposure to polychlorinated-biphenyls (1336363), or PCBs, shall be controlled so that no worker is exposed to PCBs at a concentration greater than 1.0 microgram per cubic meter of air, determined as a time-weighted average concentration, for up to a 10 hour workday, 40 hour workweek. This recommended level of exposure was determined to be the lowest reliably detectable limit by the sampling and analytical methods recommended in the document. Criteria are outlined for the medical examination of all employees subject to occupational exposure to PCBs, labeling and posting, personal protective equipment and clothing, employee information, work practices and engineering controls, sanitation practices, monitoring and recordkeeping.
