All industries must comply with the new permissible exposure limit of 5 micrograms of hexavalent chromium per cubic meter of air (5 [micro]g/m3) for an 8-hour TWA.
The mercury vapor concentrations detected in the enclosed setting, according to both personal- and area-exposure measurements, were found to exceed the OSHA 8-hour TWA permissible exposure limit (PEL).
OSHA's general industry regulations specify the permissible exposure limit (PEL).
Lead exposure to workers in the vicinity of remanufacturing operations was found to be less than one-tenth that of the OSHA permissible exposure limit for indoor lead exposure.
The rule, which would lower the permissible exposure limit from 52 micrograms to one microgram of CrVI per cubic meter of air, was published in the October 4, 2004, Federal Register.
Fume hoods are equipped with a Captair Chemical Listing, a guide to over 650 chemicals documented for retention capacity within the carbon filters at 1% of OSHA's Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL).
Medical personnel determined that he did not exceed the maximum permissible exposure limit (PEL) for that radar, and his body suffered no damage [the details of this incident can be found in the winter 2003/2004 issue--Ed].
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recently issued a request for information on beryllium that may lead to a revision of its permissible exposure limit. Beryllium was recently reclassified by the National Toxicology Program as a substance that is a "known human carcinogen"; this step will bring further scrutiny to potential exposures in the workplace.
NIOSH recommended in 1975 that the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) for total chromium be lowered from the current 100 [mu]g/m3 (micrograms per cubic meter) to approximately 2 [mu]g/m3 as an eight-hour time-weighted average.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reduced the permissible exposure limit (PEL) for 1,3-butadiene (BD) from 1,000 parts per million parts of air (ppm) to I ppm.
GE initiated the research after a new OSHA standard (29 CFR 1910.1027) was published last year, which established a lower permissible exposure limit (PEL) for cadmium fumes and dust of 5 micrograms/|m.sup.3~) of air (8-hr time-weighted average), with an "action level" of 2.5 |microg~g/|m.sup.3~.
