The following references provide information about the evaluation of occupational exposures to solvents:
Maritime: 29 CFR 1915.1000, Toxic and Hazardous Substances
Other OSHA standards that generally apply to hazardous substances include the Hazard Communication standard (1910.1200) and the Respiratory Protection standard (1910.134). Employers may also need to provide personal protective clothing (1910.132) where there is a potential hazard from skin contact with chemicals, or eye and face protection to guard against chemical splashes (1910.133).
Activities that can produce large amounts of solvent vapors are spraying & spray-painting, frequent use of solvent-soaked rags to clean parts or cleaning large surface areas, dipping or cleaning parts in large open containers, large spills or releases.
