  • Description:
    NIOSH recommends that employee exposure to antimony and its compounds in the workplace be controlled by compliance with 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, 40-hour workweek, over a working lifetime. Compliance with all sections of the recommended standard should prevent adverse effects of antimony or antimony compounds on the health of employees and provide for their safety. The standard is measurable by techniques that are reproducible and available to industry and government agencies. Sufficient technology exists to permit compliance with the recommended standard. Although NIOSH considers the workplace environmental limit to be safe based on current information, employers should regard it as the upper boundary of exposure and make every effort to maintian exposure as low as is technically feasible. The criteria and recommended standard will be reviewed and revised as necessary.
