Abstract
Presentation of the criteria and the recommended standard based thereon which were prepared to meet the need for preventing occupational diseases arising from exposure to toluene. The proposed standard applies only to the processing, manufacture, and use of toluene in products as applicable under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. These criteria were developed to ensure that the standard based thereon would protect against development of acute and chronic toluene poisoning, be measurable by techniques that are valid, reproducible, and available to industry and governmental agencies, and be attainable with existing technology. The major problem of toluene toxicity concerns its narcotic effects on workers, causing symptoms and signs such as muscular weakness, incoordination, and mental confusion which may pose a risk to both the worker and others.
