NIOSH Publishes Final IDLH Profiles for 14 Chemicals

Friday, April 28, 2017

NIOSH recently published the final Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health (IDLH) Value Profiles for 14 chemicals:

The profiles summarize the health hazards of acute exposures to high airborne concentrations of a chemical and discuss the reasoning for the chemical's proposed IDLH value. The values are based on a 30-minute exposure duration and, according to NIOSH, are the maximum levels above which only a highly reliable breathing apparatus that provides "maximum worker protection" is permitted.
