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. Regarding suitable methods for inhalative exposure assessment the European Standards EN 482, 689 and 14042 are to be considered. In addition the TRGS 402 has to be observed in Germany.

108-95-2: phenol
STEL value 16 mg/m3 ; 4 ppm (OEL (EU))
indicative
TWA value 8 mg/m3 ; 2 ppm (OEL (EU))
indicative
Skin Designation (OEL (EU))
The substance can be absorbed through the skin.
Short Term Exposure Classification: (TRGS 900 (DE)), Vapor and aerosol
Category II: Substances with a resorptive effect
OEL 8 mg/m3 ; 2 ppm (TRGS 900 (DE)), Vapor and aerosol
Ceiling limit value/factor: 2
Sum of vapors and aerosols.
Skin Designation (TRGS 900 (DE)), Vapor and aerosol
The substance can be absorbed through the skin.

Components with biological limit values

108-95-2: phenol
TRGS 903 (DE)
Determinant: Phenol with hydrolysis
Biological Specimen: Creatinine in urine
Sampling time: End of shift
Concentration: 120 mg/g Creatinine

8.2. Exposure controls
Personal protective equipment
Respiratory protection:
Suitable respiratory protection for higher concentrations or long-term effect: Gas filter for gases/vapours of organic compounds (boiling point >65 °C, e. g. EN 14387 Type A)

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):
butyl rubber (butyl) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
fluoroelastomer (FKM) - 0.7 mm coating thickness
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.
Manufacturer's directions for use should be observed because of great diversity of types.

Eye protection:
Safety glasses with side-shields (frame goggles) (e.g. EN 166)

Body protection:
No body protection required if used for intended purpose and satisfying generally accepted industrial hygiene rules.

General safety and hygiene measures
Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Do not breathe vapour/spray. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Take off immediately all contaminated clothing. Store work clothing separately.

Environmental exposure controls
For information regarding environmental exposure controls, see Section 6.
