Occupational Exposure to Formaldehyde: Final Rule [USA]
This Final Rule became effective on 26 June 1992, amending the existing rule on the same subject (29 CFR 1910.1048). It lowers the 8h TWA exposure level to formaldehyde from 1ppm to 0.75ppm, and it introduces certain additional hygiene requirements for specific hazards. To existing requirements concerning medical supervision, it adds medical removal protection provisions for workers particularly affected by exposure to formaldehyde. Measures are included for labelling, hazard warnings and training of workers exposed to formaldehyde exposures above 0.1ppm. Extensive discussion on the background to the Final Rule.
