Upon request by the Minister of Social Affairs and Employment the Health Council of the Netherlands recommends health-based occupational exposure limits for the concentration of toxic substances in workplace air. These recommendations are made by the Dutch Expert Committee on Occupational Standards, a committee of the Health Council. It constitutes the first step in a three-stage procedure that leads to legally binding exposure limits (MAC values). In the present report the Committee discusses the effects of exposure of butanols and recommends a health based occupational exposure limit for one of these substances. The conclusions are based on scientific publications prior to 1991.
