A list of the recently determined EU-limits for workers' exposure to chemical agents is available from the Official Journal of the European Communities. The list, officially entitled 'indicative occupational exposure limit values' is published as part of an EU strategy to protect the health and safety of workers from the risks associated with chemical agents at work.
