Excerpt from "OSHA rulemaking on formaldehyde exposure limits."
A brief history of the formaldehyde rulemaking may be helpful in presenting OSHA's position with regard to occupational exposure to formaldehyde. After extensive rulemaking, OSHA issued a comprehensive regulation covering occupational exposure to formaldehyde, 29 CFR 1910.1048. This rule reduced the permissible exposure limits (PELs) to 1 part formaldehyde per million parts of air (ppm) as an 8 - hour time - weighted average (TWA) and a short - term exposure limit (STEL) of 2 ppm for a 15 minute time period.
