[Article in Polish]


Some data on the toxicity of phenol are surveyed. Environmental and health hazards are discussed. Pending standards are given. These are 0.3-19 mg/m3 in the air and working places in different countries. Acceptable phenol concentration in the air is 10 mg/m3 in Poland. The same standard for public buildings is 0.012 mg/m3. Toxic effects of phenol were reported in case of occupational exposition to 5 mg/m3 of air. Data concerning urine levels of phenol in children living in the buildings of increased phenol levels in the air and health impact of this are discussed.
