Abstract/Citation: This revised standard issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration applies to all employers covered by the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. It reduces the permissible exposure limit from 10 parts benzene per million parts of air to an eight-hour time-weighted average of 1 part per million and a short-term exposure limit of 5 parts per million. The revision adds a new section 1910.1028 and Appendices A, B, C, D and E to Subpart Z of Part 1910 of vol. 29 of the Code of Federal Regulationsection
