Standard designed to protect the health and safety of employees exposed to ethylene-glycol-monobutyl-ether (111762) (EGBE) and ethylene-glycol-monobutyl-ether-acetate (112072) (EBGEA) by reducing those exposures to not more than 5 parts per million. The document contains information on recommended exposure limits for EGBE and EGBEA, exposure monitoring, medical monitoring, labeling and posting, protective clothing and equipment, informing workers about the hazards of EGBE and EGBEA, engineering controls and work practices, sanitation and hygiene, recordkeeping, chemical and physical properties of the substances, production methods and uses, number of workers potentially exposed, effects on humans, metabolism, elimination, effects on animals (hematologic effects, reproductive effects, carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, cytotoxicity), environmental sampling, analytical methods, correlation of effects and exposure, work practices (worker isolation, storage and handling, sanitation and hygiene), and spills and waste disposal.
