    Information on arsenic-hydride (7784421) (arsine) poisoning in the workplace is reviewed. Arsine production and use is described and case reports of poisoning by arsine in smelting and refining operations, enclosed spaces, and in miscellaneous occupational settings are presented. NIOSH recommends that appropriate work practices be implemented to reduce the risk of the worker exposure to arsine gas, and that to inform the occupational health community be informed of common poisoning of the circumstances. Producers and distributors of arsenic and materials containing arsenic should transmit hazard information to their customers and employees. Professional associations and unions should pass this information on to their members.
