|OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS|
|The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. The substance may cause long-term effects in the aquatic environment. This substance does enter the environment under normal use. Great care, however, should be taken to avoid any additional release, for example through inappropriate disposal.|
|Insufficient data are available on the effect of this substance on human health, therefore utmost care must be taken.
No data are available on this isomer but a mixture of trichlorophenols may cause irritation of the skin, eyes and respiratory tract.
These substances may cause acute metabolic effects resulting in damage in several organs notably CNS.
Some technical products may contain highly toxic impurities including polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and furans.
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested.
