Evaluating Exposure

The following references provide information about the evaluation of occupational exposures to solvents:

  • OSHA Occupational Chemical Database. OSHA's premier one-stop shop for occupational chemical information. It compiles information from several government agencies and organizations. Information available on the pages includes chemical identification and physical properties, exposure limits, sampling information, and additional resources.
  • Sampling and Analytical Methods. OSHA. OSHA has developed and validated methods for use by the Salt Lake Technical Center Laboratory. These standard methods have been adopted by many laboratories for the analysis of chemical compounds.
  • Surveillance Methods for Solvent-Related Hepatotoxicity. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), (2003). Determines whether a dose-response relationship exists between hepatic surveillance end-points and cumulative or subacute exposure to solvents.
