Abstract
This testimony addressed the concerns of NIOSH regarding the advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPR) dealing with occupational exposure to methylene-chloride (75092) (MC). Specifically the testimony addressed the studies that OSHA should consider in its assessment of the potential health risks, especially the carcinogenic, chronic neurological, encephalopathic, teratogenic, and mutagenic effects of MC; the dermal absorption studies available and the extent of the potential adverse health effects resulting from dermal exposure; studies or evidence indicating the combined effects of inhalation and dermal exposures; how OSHA should estimate the significance of risk at the current exposure limits; what the permissible exposure levels should be; production and control systems; substitution availability; protective equipment and clothing; worker exposure and monitoring; worker training; and medical surveillance.
