    Occupational Exposure to Chlorine is designed to help you meet the training requirements of 29 CFR for employees who work with and around chlorine. You will learn the characteristics and health hazards of chlorine and what personal protective equipment you should wear when working with or . Regarding occupational exposure assessment, the RAR relies on the large number of data available measuring air concentrations of chlorine in occupational settings. Based on these data, representative exposure scenarios can easily be derived. SCHER agrees that dermal exposures under occupational exposure conditions are not relevant and thatFile Size: KB.

    If chlorine escapes from its container, a harmful concentration of the gas in the air will quickly result, according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. Inhalation of this poisonous gas, as well as all routes of exposure, has harmful effects on health, both short-term and long-term. New or revised workplace exposure limits for 13 substances have been introduced from 17 January This latest version of EH40/ ‘Workplace exposure limits’ has been updated to include the new and revised workplace exposure limits (WELs) as introduced by the Carcinogens and Mutagens Directive (EU) / amending Directive (/37/EC).

    Brad , M.D.; and Michael Sherman, M.D., F.C.C.P. While chlorine gas inhalation has previously been reported to cause temporary mucous membrane irritation, acute pneumonitis, pulmonary edema, and transient bronchospasm, there is controversy about the existence of long-term pulmonary sequelae. Exposure to chlorine may also occur through drinking water and swimming pool water, where it is used as a disinfectant. (2) Accidental releases are another potential source of chlorine exposure. (3) Assessing Personal Exposure No data were located regarding detection of personal exposure to chlorine. Health Hazard Information Acute Effects.

Chlorine (Cl₂) is a greenish-yellow gas with a pungent, irritating odor. Exposure to low levels of chlorine can result in nose, throat, and eye irritation. At higher levels, breathing chlorine gas may result in changes in breathing rate and coughing, and damage to the lungs. Additional symptoms of exposure to chlorine can be severe.

Employers must comply with a number of standards where employees are potentially exposed to chemical hazards. These include OSHA's Permissible Exposure Limits PELs for about substances, which can be found as follows: General Industry: 29 CFRToxic and Hazardous Substances.

The recommended NIOSH standards for protecting against injury from chlorine () are presented along with sections containing the criteria upon which the standards are based--biologic effects of exposure and environmental data.

Chlorine is abundant in combined form in the earth's crust (%) and in seawater (3%). It is usually produced by electrolysis of chlorides. Contaminants include hexachloroethane, hexachlorobenzene, and water.

Chlorine was among the first of the war gases used in World War I. It is now used as a bleaching agent, as a germicidal agent for purifying water, and in the manufacture of chlorinated. Household chlorine bleach can release chlorine gas if it is mixed with certain other cleaning agents.

Chlorine was used during World War I as a choking (pulmonary) agent. How people can be exposed to chlorine. People’s risk for exposure depends on how close they are to the place where the chlorine was released. Occupational exposure limits (OELs) are tools to help employers protect the health of those who may be exposed to chemicals in their workplace.

Under the United Kingdom Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations they define adequate control by inhalation. OELs are set by the Health and Safety Commission (HSC) on advice from its Advisory Committee on Toxic Cited by: Chlorine dioxide (ClO 2) is a yellow to reddish-yellow gas at room has an unpleasant odor, similar to the odor of chlorine and reminiscent of nitric acid.

It is a respiratory irritant. Pure chlorine dioxide is stable in the dark and unstable in light. Chlorine species are highly reactive; tissue injury results from exposure to chlorine, hydrochloric acid, hypochlorous acid, or chloramines. Acute, high level exposure to chlorine gas in occupational or environmental settings results in a variety of dose-related lung effects ranging from respiratory mucus membrane irritation to pulmonary by: Chlorine (Cl2) is a greenish-yellow gas, times heavier than air, normally shipped and stored as liquid in cylinders or tank cars.

It may also be formed when some chemicals such as household bleaches are mixed with other chemicals such as ammonia or acids. Recommendation of Occupational Exposure Limits (–) The Japan Society for Occupational Health May, 17, The Japan Society for Occupational Health (JSOH) recommends the Occupational Exposure Limits (OELs) as reference values for preventing adverse health effects on workers caused by occupational exposure to chemical substances File Size: 1MB.

Including findings from experimental as well as clinical studies, this essential reference offers in-depth coverage of individual toxicants, target organ toxicity, major incidents, toxic. Chlorine gas that comes into contact with moist tissues, such as the eyes, throat and lungs, will produce an acid that can cause damage.

Exposure to low levels of chlorine gas can result in nose, throat and eye irritation. At higher levels, breathing chlorine gas may result in changes in a person’s breathing rate, coughing and damage to the. The ATSDR toxicological profile succinctly characterizes the toxicologic and adverse health effects information for the hazardous substance described here.

Each peer-reviewed profile identifies and reviews the key literature that describes a hazardous substance's toxicologic properties. Other pertinent literature is also presented, but is described in less detail than the key studies.
