Protective Action Criteria: review summary

Description

This document presents the summary findings of a review conducted by Alberta Health to provide background information for health professionals who may use protective action criteria, or PACs. Protective Action Criteria (PACs) are exposure guidelines used during chemical emergencies to help protect the public from health effects of short-term exposures to hazardous chemicals in the air. PACs are used by government agencies and the private sector to evaluate the potential impact of a one-time rare exposure to a chemical.
