Abstract Little information is available on the effects of triglycidyl isocyanurate (TGIC) in humans. Skin sensitisation leading to severe dermatitis has been reported in occupationally exposed workers. There is little information on the toxic effects of beryllium or its compounds in humans following a single exposure, although chemical pneumonitis has been observed following single massive exposures. Soluble beryllium compounds have been reported to produce skin and eye irritation. Repeated exposure to beryllium or its compounds can result in an acute or chronic form of lung disease. No conclusions can be reached concerning the carcinogenic potential of beryllium in humans.
