  • Description:
    NIOSH recommends that employee exposure to vinyl acetate in the workplace be controlled by adherence to the following sections. The recommended standard is designed to protect the health and provide for the safety of employees for up to a 10-hour workshift, in a 40-hour workweek, during a working lifetime. Compliance with all sections of the recommended standard should prevent adverse effects of vinyl acetate on the health of workers and provide for their safety. Sufficient technology exists to permit compliance with the recommended standard. Although NIOSH considers the recommended workplace environmental limit to be safe levels based on current information, the employer should regard it as the upper boundary of exposure and make every effort to maintain exposures as low as possible. The standard will be subject to review and revision as necessary.
