Benzene Facts

The federal Hazard Communication Standard requires that every chemical company that supplies a chemical product to your employer provide them with a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). The MSDS must identify all the hazardous
ingredients in the product, with exception to trade secrets.

Amounts as little of one cup of benzene evaporated in an area as large as a football field size building is 3.3 times the OSHA standard, 6.6 times the ACGIH standard, and 33 times the NIOSH standard.

Millions of workers may be exposed to benzene in the U.S. every year,
estimated at more than 3 million workers.

The EPA estimated that 50% of the U.S. population has been exposed to benzene by industrial sources, including oil refineries and chemical plants.

Gasoline fumes have 1,000 times the concentration of benzene recommended by NIOSH.
