Abstract
Hazards associated with occupational exposure to ethylene-thiourea (96457) (ETU) are reviewed. The chemical and physical properties of ETU are described and worker exposures during manufacture, production, and application are discussed. The extent of occupational exposure to ETU is assessed. The biological effects of ETU are reviewed based on laboratory animal studies. The potential effects of ETU on humans are also considered. The author concludes that ETU is a potential carcinogen and teratogen. Recommendations include worker education regarding the hazards of ETU, use of EUT in encapsulated forms, proper labeling of ETU, and the use of sanitary practices in the workplace.
