Book DescriptionSpecial feature: the complete list of MAK- and BAT values on a CD-ROM included in the book! The CD-ROM allows easy searches e. g. for substance names or CAS numbers. MAK values (Maximum Concentrations at the Workplace) and BAT values (Biological Tolerance Values) promote the protection of health at the workplace. They are an efficient indicator for the toxic potential of chemical compounds. This book contains a list of scientifically recommended threshold limit values for about 900 chemical compounds. Carcinogens, germ cell mutagens, embryotoxicants, sensitizing substances and those potentially bearing a risk to pregnancy are treated separately. The evaluations are revised annually by a commission of experts. Of particular value are the lists of substances which were reviewed in 2004/2005 and substances being examined for the establishment of MAK and BAT values in coming years.
