||Occupational exposure to 1,3-dichloropropene and 1,2-dichloropropane may be through inhalation or via the skin. 1,3-dichloropropene causes irritation of the eyes and the upper respiratory mucosa. Inhalation of high concentrations results in serious signs and symptoms of poisoning, while lower exposures result in depression of the central nervous system and irritation of the respiratory system. Dermal exposure causes severe skin irritation. Liver and kidney function changes have also been reported. Several cases of dermatitis and skin sensitisation have been reported in workers using solvent mixtures containing 1,2-dichloropropane. Detailed summaries in French and Spanish.
