These guidelines are deemed appropriate for the pilot plant stage of development of advanced coal gasification technology. They are based on pilot plant experience thus far inthe United States, and on known hazards and control procedures in analogous industries. Those responsible for health protection require information that can apply to their specific problems and operations. The document is designed to help the user by presenting evidence and rationale that can be evaluated and modified or adjusted for application to individual circumstances. A representative process is described in detail and significant differences in other processes are noted. Toxicants and potentially hazardous operations are identified. Health effects associated with the toxicants are reviewed. Guidelines for worker protection are prescribed, including engineering controls, work practices, workplace monitoring, medical surveillance, and personal protection. Monitoring procedures are recommended to meet the perceived needs for environmental sampling and medical surveillance.
