Abstract
A NIOSH health hazard evaluation determination is presented for the Harris Structural Steel Company upon request from employees regarding exposure to Carbo Zinc inorganic zinc (7440666) coating used to paint steel girders and beams. Topics include: plant process; evaluation design, methods, criteria, and results; and recommendations for preventing adverse health effects to workers due to lead (7439921) exposure. Exposure of spray painters to lead is determined as being potentially toxic at the concentrations measured during the evaluation. Exposure of spray painters to chromium (7440473) and iron-oxide and the exposure of grinder cleaners, the crane operator, and the milling machine operator to lead, chromium, and iron oxide at the concentrations found during the evaluation are not expected to result in toxic effects to the exposed workers. Worker exposures are tabulated for lead, chromium, and iron (7439896).
