Abstract
Recommended criteria for a standard intended to protect the employees against exposure to acrylamide (79061) in the workplace for up to a 10-hour work shift, 40-hour work week, over a working lifetime. Occupational exposure to acrylamine, because of systemic effects and dermal irritation produced by contact with acrylamide, is defined as work in an area where acrylamide is stored, produced, processed, or used. The main topics covered include: recommendations for levels of acrylamide in the air including sampling and analysis; medical surveillance; personal protective equipment; informing employees of hazards from acrylamide; work practices; sanitation; monitoring and recordkeeping, biologic effects of exposure, including epidemiology, toxicology, carcinogenesis, mutagenesis, and teratogenesis; environmental data and engineering controls.
