This publication contains a criteria document for the establishment of an occupational exposure limit value for n-hexane. The objective of the study was to collect a broad spectrum of relevant data on n-hexane chemistry, production, occurrence in the workplace, toxicology, and evaluation of existing occupational exposure limits, where known. All data are interpreted with respect to human health risk and occupational exposure, and are summarised at the end of the report. This criteria document will be used in the preparation of legislation on limit values for the protection of workers from the risks related to exposure to chemical, physical and biological agents at work.
