Abstract
The criteria for a recommended standard for occupational exposure to parathion (56382) includes recommendations for a standard, biologic effects of exposure, environmental and biologic methodologies, development of standard, work practices, research needs, and appendices. The recommendations cover environmental (workplace air), medical surveillance, labeling and posting, personal protective equipment and protective clothing, informing employees of hazards from parathion, work practices, sanitation, and monitoring and recordkeeping requirements. The biological effects reviewed include extent of exposure, historical reports, effects on humans, animal toxicity, epidemiological studies, carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, teratogenicity, and correlation of exposure and effect. Air sampling methods, parathion analysis, and blood cholinesterase analysis are given.
