Resumen Recommendations are given for the prevention of occupational disease due to any of the isomers or salts of the pesticide dinitro-o-cresol. Inhalation of and skin contact with the aerosol form is hazardous. When skin exposure is prevented, the time-weighted average maximum concentration is 0.2mg/m3 for up to a 10h workshift and 40h workweek. Other recommendations relate to medical supervision, labelling, personal protection, information of personnel, work and sanitation practices, monitoring and record keeping. The criteria on which the recommendations are based are discussed at some length under the following heads: biological effects of exposure; environmental data; work practices and development of the standard. Research needs are defined and procedures for sampling and analysis, and useful additional information are given in appendices.
