Ethylene glycol dinitrate and nitroglycerine are vasodilators and initial exposures result in headache, dizziness, nausea, or decreases in blood pressure; however, workers become tolerant of the vasodilatory activity after 2 to 4 days of exposure [NIOSH ]. NIOSH recommends in this document that worker exposure to nitroglycerin () (NG) and ethylene-glycol-dinitrate () (EGDN) or to mixtures of these two compounds shall not exceed sampling period. After 2 to 4 days of occupational exposure to NG or EGDN, most workers no longer experience symptoms because they have become tolerant to the vasodilatory effects of the compounds (Ref. ). Angina pectoris has been reported among workers who were exposed to . A total of 7 test persons were exposed to mg/m 3 of a mixture of nitroglycerin and ethylene glycol dinitrate ( to mg/m 3) in explosives magazines for 25 minutes. The concentrations given in air represent the total exposure to nitroglycerin and ethylene glycol dinitrate, expressed as : A Hartwig, Michael Arand.

Absorption through the skin is usually the major route of exposure for workers who have direct dermal contact with nitroglycerin or ethylene glycol dinitrate. Nitroglycol and nitroglycerine exposure in a dynamite industry Hogstedt C, Davidsson B. An excess mortality from chronic cardio-cerebrovascular diseases among dynamite workers has recently been reported from two Swedish explosives by: 7. Get this from a library!

Occupational exposure to nitroglycerin and ethylene glycol dinitrate. By. Abstract "NIOSH recommends in this document that worker exposure to nitroglycerin () (NG) and ethylene-glycol-dinitrate () (EGDN) or to mixtures of these two compounds shall not exceed sampling period. Specific recommendations were listed for medical. Acute Lethality. Although sudden deaths due to circulatory failure have been reported among workers exposed chronically to nitrated esters such as nitroglycerin and ethylene glycol dinitrate (Carmichael and Lieben ), no deaths attributable to cardiovascular effects were reported for U.S. Navy personnel involved in torpedo maintenance work (Horvath et al. ; . The association between CAD and occupational exposure to nitroglycerin, ethylene-glycol-dinitrate and other aliphatic nitrates, carbon-monoxide, nonhalogenated and halogenated industrial solvents, arsenic, and cobalt, as well as blood pressure problems caused by cadmium and lead were discussed.
