Abstract
The criteria and the recommended standard based thereon are presented for meeting the need for preventing occupational diseases arising from exposure to sulfur-dioxide (7446095) and preventing chronic and acute sulfur-dioxide poisoning. The proposed standard applies only to the processing, manufacture, and use of sulfur- dioxide, or its release as an intermediate, by-product, or impurity therefrom as applicable under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, and not designed for the population at large and any extrapolation beyond general occupational exposures is not warranted. Topics include: biological effects of exposure; environmental data and biologic evaluation; personal protective equipment and clothing; sampling and analysis methods and equipment; monitoring; engineering environmental control and sanitation; labeling and employee information; exposure reporting; toxic effects on humans and animals; safe work practices; and preventive medicine.
