(d) For the definition and the application of the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL), refer to section 5155(b) and (c)(1).

(e) Parts of gas or vapor per million parts of air by volume at 25°C and 760mm Hg pressure.

(f) Milligrams of substance per cubic meter of air at 25°C and 760mm Hg pressure.

(g) Refer to section 5155(b) and (c)(3) for the significance of the Ceiling notation. A "C" notation in this column means the values given in the PEL columns are ceiling values. A numerical entry in this column represents a ceiling value in addition to the TWA values.

(h) A number of gases and vapors, when present in high concentrations, act primarily as asphyxiants without other adverse effects. A concentration limit is not included for each material because the limiting factor is the available oxygen. (Several of these materials present fire or explosion hazards.)

(i) Coal tar pitch volatiles (benzene or cyclohexane-soluble fraction) include fused polycyclic hydrocarbons (some of which are known carcinogens) which volatilize from the distillation residues of coal, petroleum (excluding asphalt), wood, and other organic matter. Asphalt (CAS 8052-42-4, and CAS 64742-93-4) is not covered under the "coal tar pitch volatiles" standard.

(j) This standard applies to the cotton waste processing operations of waste recycling (sorting, blending, cleaning, and willowing) and garnetting. It does not apply to cotton gins, cottonseed oil industry, or operations covered by section 5190.

(k) A PEL of 0.05 ppm shall apply to exposures involving a mixture of ethylene glycol dinitrate and nitroglycerin.

(l) As sampled by method that does not collect vapor.

(m) Thermal decomposition of the fluorocarbon chain in air leads to the formation of oxidized products containing carbon, fluorine and oxygen. An index of exposure to these products is possible through their alkaline hydrolysis followed by a quantitative determination of fluoride content. No particular concentration limit is specified pending evaluation of the toxicity of the products but concentrations should be kept below the sensitivity of the analytical method.

(n) The concentration and percentage of the particulate used for this limit are determined from the fraction passing a size selector with the following characteristics:
Aerodynamic Diameter
in Micrometers
(unit density sphere)
Percent
Passing Selector
0.................................................. 100
1.................................................. 97
2.................................................. 91
3................................................... 74
4................................................... 50
5................................................... 30
6................................................... 17
7................................................... 9
8................................................... 5
10.................................................... 1

(o) Refer to sections 5155(b) and (c)(2) for the definition and application of the Short Term Exposure Limit (STEL).

(p) (Reserved)

(q) Fibers per cubic centimeter of air at 25°C and 760mm Hg pressure. To be considered a fiber for this limit the glass particle must be longer than 5µm, have a length to diameter ratio of three or more, and have a diameter less than 3µm. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Method 7400, Issue 2, August 15, 1994, which is hereby incorporated by reference, shall be used for measuring airborne fiber concentrations.

(r) Compliance with the subtilisins PEL is assessed by sampling with a high volume sampler (600-800 liters per minute) for at least 60 minutes.

(s) The concentration and percentage of the particulate used for this limit are determined from the fraction passing a size selector with the following characteristics:
Aerodynamic Diameter
in Micrometers
(unit density sphere)
Percent
Passing Selector
0.................................................. 100
1.................................................. 97
2.................................................. 94
5.................................................. 87
10.................................................. 77

30.................................................. 58

50.................................................. 52.2
100.................................................. 50

(t) Glutaraldehyde can cause occupational asthma and skin sensitization responses such as contact dermatitis. Exposure related symptoms may include one or more of the following: shortness of breath, chest tightness, wheeze, cough, skin rash, hives, and irritation of the nose, throat, skin or eye. Hazard communication training required by sections 5191 or 5194 shall address these health hazards and symptoms along with the measures taken by the employer to evaluate and control exposures that can include medical evaluations, exposure monitoring, ventilation systems, work practices, and personal protective equipment. The communication system required by section 3203 shall inform employees where to report possible health symptoms and where to ask questions, report concerns, and receive information about the employer’s evaluation and control measures.

(u) This PEL applies to the sum of the exposures to the substance in the vapor state and from the particulate fraction specified in footnote (s) in this table.
