Standard set under the occupational safety and health act that sets allowable levels of worker exposure to such toxic substances as asbestos, certain chemicals, and radiation. In many cases workers must wear devices to determine their exposure to toxic workplace substances, and when the maximum is reached, they must be transferred to another workplace. Business firms that violate the standard can be fined.
