The CDC reference is a good one.  One thing to remember, if you are going to use formaldehyde/formalin routinely, is that it is now considered a carcinogen.  You will need to protect your workers against exposure to the vapors.  You should check with your government for the regulations, but I would assume you would not want to harm your workers.

 

It also stinks and is unpleasant to smell, and can be damaging to lung tissue.

 

Here are some OSHA pages on the US formaldehyde standard and a fact sheet on the chemical and hazards .
