Criteria for a Recommended Standard: Occupational Exposure to Vinyl Halides
Details:
  • Corporate Authors:
    National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
  • Description:
    NIOSH recommends that employee exposure to vinyl halides in the workplace be controlled by adherence to the provisions for vinyl chloride in 29 CFR 1910.1017, the contents of which are provided as Appendix I of this document, with the exception that the respirator provisions in 29 CFR 1910-1017 (g) (l) (i-iv) and also 29 CFR 1910 (g) (6) (ii) shall be replaced with those given below. All provisions shall be adhered to for each of the vinyl halides as defined below. The recommended occupational exposure limits are measureable by techniques that are valid, reproducible, and available to industry and government agencies. Sufficient technology exists to permit compliance with the recommended standard. Employers should make every effort to limit employee exposure to the vinyl halides to concentrations that are as low as possible, with an eventual goal of zero exposure. Employee exposures shall be kept at or below the limits prescribed in 29 CFR 1910.1017. The criteria and standard will be subject to review and revision as necessary.
