Exposure controls / personal protection

Engineering measures :

Extraction to remove vapours at their source.

Ensure good ventilation of the work station.

Avoid splashes (appropriate clothing, protective screens on machines etc.)

Control parameters

Exposure limit values (Human Health)

- Occupational exposure limit values (France): Cresols (Phenol, methyl-) VME: 22 mg/m3 (5 ppm)

- ACGIH Threshold Limit Values (U.S.A./A.C.G.I.H.) Cresols (Phenol, methyl-) TLV ( TWA ) : 5 ppm:

Surveillance procedures :

Monitoring of the atmosphere in the work place. The recommended limits SHOULD NOT be exceeded.

Personal protective equipment

- Respiratory protection :

If the ventilation is suitable, it is not essential to wear respiratory equipment.

If mist is formed: Respiratory protective device with a particle filter.

- Hand protection :

Use suitable chemical-resistant protective gloves (compliant with Standard EN 374-1). Protective gloves must be chosen according to the function of the work station: other chemicals which may be handled, physical protection necessary (resistance to cutting, puncture, heat), dexterity required.

Eye protection :

Goggles. -
