||Health-based recommended occupational exposure limits for 1,3-butadiene
||Department of Social Affairs and Employment, Directorate-General of Labour (Ministerie van Sociale Zaken en Werkgelegenheid, Directoraat-Generaal van de Arbeid), Postbus 69, 2270 MA Voorburg, Netherlands, 1990. 43p. Illus. 57 ref.
||The risks to human health of exposure to 1,3-butadiene are evaluated. Attention is given to: production, uses and occurrences; environmental and biological monitoring; occupational exposure limits in various countries; toxicokinetics; toxic effects (acute toxicity, carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, and epidemiology). Based on long-term inhalation studies in rats and mice, differences between species (rats, mice) and the epidemiological data concerning cancer incidence (especially leukaemia) a risk evaluation was performed. When the risk of 4x10-3 is taken for the occupational population, the dose level will be 47.4mg/m3. With a risk level of 10-4 or 10-6 the dose level will be 1.18 and 0.012mg/m3, respectively.
