Abstract
Discussion of setting standards for exposure limits including: concepts of health standards and occupational exposure limits, which attempt to safeguard workers' health while continuing the use of certain chemicals; problems of standard setting, including hypersusceptibility and reconciliation of limits for workroom air with stricter ambient air quality limits; historical background of standard setting; and current practice in developing standards. Mention is made of the Occupational Safety and Health Act, and its division of responsibility between the Department of Labor and Department of Health Education and Welfare.
