Información bibliográfica 12 May 1982, No 355, p.773-774.
Resumen This Order (effective 1 Jan. 1983) applies to work involving exposure to benzene or to products containing a certain percentage of benzene. Employers must take measures to protect their employees from exposure to benzene, and employees must observe the instructions aimed at preventing benzene exposure. The use of benzene or benzene-containing products as solvents or diluents is forbidden. Control measures must be taken in premises where benzene is produced, used or handled to ensure that benzene vapour concentrations do not exceed 16mg/m3 over 8h (48mg/m3 over 15min) at workplaces. Provision should be made for enclosures. Other provisions concern the determination of benzene concentrations, skin and respiratory protection, instruction of personnel, and exemptions which may be granted by the National Board of Occupational Safety and Health.
