|OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS|
TLV: (respirable fraction): 0.002 mg/m3, as TWA; A2 (suspected human carcinogen); BEI issued.
MAK: (as Cd, inhalable fraction): skin absorption (H); carcinogen category: 1; germ cell mutagen group: 3A
|Bioaccumulation of this chemical may occur in crustacea and plants. It is strongly advised not to let the chemical enter into the environment because it is persistent.|
|There is little information on the effects of this compound.
Health effects are here mainly based on the studies of other cadmium compounds.
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested.
Welding and soldering of surfaces treated with cadmium sulfide release highly toxic cadmium oxide which may cause acute lung injury (see ICSC 0117 - cadmium monoxide).
Do NOT take working clothes home.
