      The relationship between the level of occupational exposure to epichlorohydrin (ECHH) and the clastogenic effect was studied on a group of 33 workers. The effect of ECHH was assessed by differences in the frequency of chromosome aberrations in peripheral blood lymphocytes in ECHH-exposed and control by: care workers: incidence, characteristics, and transmission of bloodborne pathogens in South Korea Ju Hyun Lee1†, Junhyeon Cho1†, Yung Jung Kim2, Sang Hyuk Im1, Eun Sun Jang1, Jin-Wook Kim1, Hong Bin Kim1 and Sook-Hyang Jeong1,3* Abstract Background: Health care workers (HCWs) are at high risk for occupational blood exposures (OBEs) and.

The exposure to health hazards can lead to diseases and illnesses that can manifest either immediately or after a long .

      The key is to understand the definition of the term “occupational exposure”. According to the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens standard found at , “occupational exposure” means “ reasonably anticipated skin, eye, mucous membrane, or parenteral contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials that may result from the. route of occupational ion is an organophosphate watery eyes, blurred vision, salivation, pesticide that is used to kill insects on agricultural crops, on stored products, on golf courses, in home gardens and indoor sites where trees and shrubs are grown.

PREFACE. Under the authority of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) P.L. ofthe National Advisory Committee for Acute Exposure Guideline Levels for Hazardous Substances (NAC/AEGL Committee) has been established to identify, review, and interpret relevant toxicologic and other scientific data and develop AEGLs for high.

The routes of potential human exposure to epichlorohydrin are inges-tion, inhalation, and dermal contact (HSDB ). Evidence suggests that epichlorohydrin is readily absorbed when ingested or inhaled and that it is a systemic poison when absorbed through the skin (WHO ).

Exposure will occur primarily in occupational settings, but in. The acute toxicity of epichlorohydrin is demonstrated in severe irritant effects on the human body. As it has not yet been established whether single exposure to the substance can lead to an increased rate of cancer, or whether this is more likely to occur in the case of long-term exposure, exposure should essentially be minimised.

10 Employees in dangerous areas should be equipped with their. Epichlorohydrin is a major raw material for epoxy and phenoxy resins, and is used in the manufacture of glycerine, in curing propylene-based rubbers, as a solvent for cellu-lose esters and ethers, and in resins with high wet-strength for the paper industry (Lewis, ).
