You will be required to comply with this code if you intend to undertake work involving the usage of styrene in the fibreglass reinforced plastics industry.
Styrene is a solvent that is used widely in the fibreglass reinforced plastics industry. Most polyester resins used in this industry contain substantial amounts of styrene, ranging from 40-60 percent. Styrene is a major hazard as it can enter the body through the lungs or the skin. Exposure to styrene has the potential to damage the health of workers.
This code provides practical guidance and strategies to reduce exposure to styrene of persons in the fibreglass reinforced plastics industry. It is intended to assist in the control levels of styrene monomer to as low as reasonably practicable below the occupational exposure standard of 50 parts per million.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance that may be required.
