Methods for the determination of exposure and their degrees of accuracy are given. The permissible exposure level for cresol is set at 5ppm in airborne concentrations, averaged over an 8 hour period. Methods for medical examinations and surveillance of workers, including types of clinical tests and the frequency at which they should be administered are given. Necessary personal protective equipment includes items for eye protection, skin protection, and respiratory protection. Employer obligations for injury due to exposure are discussed.
