Isoflurane exposure in an occupational setting can cause adverse health effects. Preventing occupational exposure and implementing an isoflurane safety program is important. In the United States, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has not established a permissible exposure limit (PEL) for isoflurane, and the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health’s Recommended Exposure Limit (REL) of 2 ppm for waste anesthetic gases is of little use, since it was established before isoflurane was in wide-spread use.
