OSHA requires employers to provide a safe and healthy working environment for employees. Of greatest concern are gases and vapors in the extremely toxic category, having TLV, permissible exposure limit (PEL), short-term exposure limit (STEL), or TLV-C values of 10 ppm or less. These standards are usually developed by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
This section focuses on exposure limits, continuous dosage sensors, and the material safety data sheet (MSDS), which contains standardized information about the properties and hazards of toxic substances.
