Title Health-based recommended occupational exposure limit for piperazine
Bibliographic information Department of Social Affairs and Employment, Directorate-General of Labour (Ministerie van Sociale Zaken en Werkgelegenheid, Directoraat-Generaal van de Arbeid), Postbus 90804, 2509 LV Den Haag, Netherlands, 1992. iii, 35p. Illus. 58 ref.
Abstract Evaluation of the health hazards of exposure to piperazine (based in part on the consensus report on piperazine by the Swedish National Board of Occupational Safety and Health). Attention is given to: identity, physical and chemical properties, monitoring; sources of exposure; environment levels and human exposure; guidelines and standards; toxicokinetics; effects in animals and man (acute toxicity, long-term toxicity/carcinogenicity); previous evaluations by (inter)national bodies; evaluation of human health risk. Analysis of the data available led to a recommended health-based occupational exposure limit for piperazine of 0.1mg/m3 (0.03ppm) as an 8-h TWA concentration. For short-term exposure a 15-min value of 0.3mg/m3 (0.1ppm) is recommended. Summary in Dutch.
