Unprotected workers exposed to as much as 1000 parts per million (ppm) or more died of the chemical’s narcotic effect.

A number of workers who were exposed to benzene escaped these outcomes but at a later date developed acute myelogenous leukemia. As information on this experience with benzene toxicity was collected and publicized, the worker protective level was reduced to 25 ppm; it is now set at 1 ppm.
