Styrene exposure is best controlled through the use of engineering and work practices. Some operations (e.g., certain open molders using manual techniques) have shown that engineering and work practice controls are not practical for limiting exposure below 100 ppm. For situations where engineering controls are not feasible, additional protection in such as respiratory protection and personal protective equipment (PPE) should be provided. The following reference provides possible solutions for styrene hazards in the workplace.
