The hazards associated with exposure to hydrogen peroxide vapor are well known. The occupational exposure limits for this compound is consistent among the more widely used governmental and professional organizations:Wheras Peracetic acid occupational exposure limits are still being developed, and the OELs for EtO changed in the 1980s, the hazards of hydrogen peroxide are well
Lead Exposure Limits NIOSH CDCJun 18, 2018 · The required (OSHA) Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) for lead is also no greater than 50 µg/m 3 averaged over an 8-hour period. The PEL is reduced for shifts longer than 8 hours by the equation PEL = 400/hours worked.

Threshold Limit Value Short-term exposure (TLV-STEL):A 15-minute time weighted average exposure that should not be exceeded at any time during a workday, even if the overall 8-hour TLV-TWA is below the TLV-TWA. Workers should not be exposed more than four times per day to concentrations between TLV-TWA and TLV-STEL.
Occupational exposure limits - ECHAOccupational exposure limits Such limits are set by regulatory authorities at European Union and national levels, taking into account available information and the most recent data on the hazards of a substance, particularly with respect to carcinogenicity, mutagenicity and toxicity to reproduction, and on the acute effects of exposure.

The processes for establishing voluntary occupational exposure limits (OELs) by nonprofit organizations have been legally and scientifically challenged recently. This follows a long history of legal challenges to the standards developed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
WEELs AIHAOccupational Exposure Limits (OELs) are normally averaged over an 8-hour workday and serve to protect against acute and chronic health effects. Since 2013, the development of Workplace Environmental Exposure Levels (WEELs ®) has been managed by the nonprofit organization Toxicology Excellence for Risk Assessment (TERA) .
Workplace Chemical Exposure Limits Now in EPAs HandsRegulators at the Environmental Protection Agency can accomplish what their counterparts at the Occupational Safety and Health Administration largely have not:They can limit worker exposure to a host of hazardous chemicals. But even with that newfound legal authority, the EPA is hampered by a lack of credible data on which to act.
