Typically, pharmaceutical companies develop their own internal standards.  These OEL’s may or may not be on the MSDS.  However, the limits are not usually published.  Your colleague will most likely need to contact the pharmaceutical company that manufactured the drug.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Occupational Exposure Limits for Pharmaceuticals


I have a colleague who is working on a consulting project and he is looking for Occupational Exposure Limits for pharmaceuticals.  His request is given below.   Any help is appreciated.

Any idea where I can get a list of OELs for pharmaceuticals?  I am specifically interested in the so-called high-potency active ingredients (HPAPI) that are typically Safebridge category 3 and 4. Most of the OEL lists out there have all manner of industrial chemicals, and I'm hoping that you can help me find a more focused list.
