Abstract
Guidelines intended to assist in providing a safe and healthful workplace by preventing employee exposure to carcinogens. The booklet was developed as an introduction to occupational carcinogenesis and consists of a nontechnical discussion of cancer, carcinogens and requirements of the OSHA standards for 14 carcinogens promulgated in 1974. It is designed to inform production workers, first line supervisory and other nontechnical management personnel of the requirements of these standards. The standards discussed are of general nature and represent minimal conditions that should be observed from the time a substance is identified as a human cancer suspect agent until specific standards are promulgated.
