Abstract
The health effects of occupational hydrogen-chloride (7647010) (HCl) exposure are reviewed. The types of hydrogen-chloride used in industry are discussed and the production and economics of its use are also discussed. Sources of HCl exposure are described, and the resulting health effects are discussed. Summaries of associated injuries and illnesses are presented. Control technology is discussed in terms of engineering control programs, safe working policies, worker education and training programs, and medical surveillance programs. Government and industrial standards for HCl exposure and other guidelines are discussed and their limitations explained. The authors conclude that a significant number of occupational injuries are caused by HCl exposure, primarily because of inadequate worker education and training. Practical guidelines for the safe handling of HCl are also required.
