||Methylene chloride: Final Rule [USA]
||22 Sept. 1998, Vol.63, No.183, p.50712-50722.
||In 1997 OSHA issued a standard regulating occupational exposure to methylene chloride (dichloromethane), which lowered the 8h TWA Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) from 500ppm to 25ppm, and set a 15min short term exposure limit (STEL) of 125ppm. This final rule adds a provision for temporary medical removal protection for exposed workers at a particular risk because of an existing medical condition. It also amends the startup dates by which certain employers must comply with the standard.
