Exposure controls / personal protection

8.1. Control parameters

Components with occupational exposure limits

The surveillance of the workplace by exposure measurements may be necessary, in order to proof the efficiency of safety measures, for example ventilation or the need of respiratory protection. Since this requires a specific competency, only accredited laboratories should be contracted.

No occupational exposure limits known.

PNEC
freshwater: 0,02 mg/l

marine water: 0,002 mg/l

intermittent release: 0,095 mg/l

sediment (freshwater): 0,092 mg/kg

sediment (marine water): 0,0092 mg/kg

soil: 1,63 mg/kg

STP: 100 mg/l

oral (secondary poisoning): 1,04 mg/kg


DNEL
worker:
Long-term exposure- systemic effects, Inhalation: 1 mg/m3

worker:
Long-term exposure- systemic effects, dermal: 0,13 mg/kg

consumer:
Long-term exposure- systemic effects, Inhalation: 0,25 mg/m3

consumer:
Long-term exposure- systemic effects, dermal: 0,07 mg/kg

Components with DNEL

1116-54-7: 2,2'-(nitrosoimino)bisethanol
worker: Long-term exposure- systemic effects, Inhalation: 0,00051 mg/m3
The value corresponds to a DMEL.
worker: Long-term exposure- systemic effects, dermal: 0,00015 mg/kg
The value corresponds to a DMEL.

8.2. Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Respiratory protection in case of vapour/aerosol release.

Combination filter for gases/vapours of organic compounds and solid and liquid particles (f.e. EN 14387 Type A-P2)

Consider the risk management measures as outlined in the exposure scenario.

Hand protection:
Chemical resistant protective gloves (EN 374)
Suitable materials also with prolonged, direct contact (Recommended: Protective index 6, corresponding > 480 minutes of permeation time according to EN 374):
e.g. nitrile rubber (0.4 mm), chloroprene rubber (0.5 mm), polyvinylchloride (0.7 mm) and other
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.
Supplementary note: The specifications are based on tests, literature data and information of glove manufacturers or are derived from similar substances by analogy. Due to many conditions (e.g. temperature) it must be considered, that the practical usage of a chemical-protective glove in practice may be much shorter than the permeation time determined through testing.

Protective gloves must not be worn when working on machines with rotating workpieces or rotating tools, if there is a risk of entanglement.
It is recommended to use liquid-tight gloves no longer than necessary, ideally they should be exchanged hourly, or to use undergloves made from cotton.
To use liquid-tight gloves without exchanging them after at least 4 hours per day is considered as stressing the skin (humid work). The usage should not be continuously and should not replace technical and organizational measures.

Eye protection:
Tightly fitting safety goggles (splash goggles) (e.g. EN 166)

Body protection:
Body protection must be chosen depending on activity and possible exposure, e.g. apron, protecting boots, chemical-protection suit (according to EN 14605 in case of splashes or EN ISO 13982 in case of dust).

General safety and hygiene measures
Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wearing of closed work clothing is required additionally to the stated personal protection equipment. Hands and/or face should be washed before breaks and at the end of the shift. Gloves must be inspected regularly and prior to each use. Replace if necessary (e.g. pinhole leaks). Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke.
