NIOSH 1993 Nov; :1-8
This testimony presents specific responses of NIOSH to OSHA requests for additional information. Specific topics touched on in this testimony include the provision of additional information on the change out schedule for respirator cartridges/canisters, additional insight from a published article on the potential usefulness of biological monitoring to evaluate dermal exposures, engineering controls in the autobody repair industry, information on the types of engineering controls that would be appropriate for reducing airborne concentrations of glycol ethers during bulk transfer operations, engineering controls in a previous study in the semiconductor industry, a surveillance program for glycol ethers, and the position of NIOSH on future OSHA rulemaking for other glycol ethers.
