May 31, 2022 – A Submission to the ACGIH TLV Committee
OHCOW’s mission includes a goal to protect workers and their communities from occupational diseases, injuries, and illnesses. As part of this mission, OHCOW encourages health-based and evidence-based occupational exposure limits (OELs) for chemical exposures.
In 2022, OHCOW had the opportunity to provide commentary to the ACGIH (American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienist) Threshold Limit Values (TLVs) and Biological Exposure Indices (BEIs). ACGIH TLVs and BEIs are not standards. They are health-based guidelines established by committees that review published and peer-reviewed literature.
