• Abstract: Response to the EPA referral of 1,3-Butadiene (BD) to OSHA. It was determined that BD poses risk to the occupationally exposed population at the current OSHA permissible exposure limit (PEL) and that the risk can be reduced or prevented through the promulgation of a revised standard. Exposure to BD can be controlled by instituting engineering controls, improving work practices or requiring employees to use personal protective equipment. Potential exposure can be effectively reduced through the reduction of the current PEL.
