Abstract
Information on the toxic effects and recommended exposure standards for antimony (7440360) is presented. Production, use and distribution data is included together with estimates of the extent of occupational exposure. Symptoms of acute and chronic poisoning in humans and laboratory animals are reviewed, along with experimental results on metabolism, reproductive effects, carcinogenicity and mutagenicity. Sampling and analytical methods for determining antimony in the workplace are described. Recommendations are provided for medical monitoring of exposed workers, environmental sampling, product labeling, work practices and workplace hygiene, use of protective clothing, and engineering controls. The author recommends that the occupational exposure limit for antimony be maintained at the current Federal limit of 0.5 milligrams per cubic meter for a 10 hour workshift during a 40 hour work week.
