Abstract
The chemical and physical properties, industrial uses, and occupational exposures (SIC-3339) to selenium (7782492) are reviewed. The biochemistry, toxicity, carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, and teratogenicity of selenium also are reviewed. The author concludes that OSHA standards for exposure to selenium and its compounds are probably adequate. He recommends use of appropriate good work and housekeeping practices, and engineering controls and personal protective equipment. Smoking and eating at the worksite should be prohibited.
