Abstract
Air sampling and medical investigations at an industry manufacturing alumina (1344281) from bauxite indicate that alumina dust and sinter dust are toxic at the concentrations found during the evaluation, while crystalline silica and fluorides in the cryolite area are not toxic in the concentrations measured. Workers in the alumina bagging area noted occasional burning of the nose and had a history of skin irritation, although dermatitis was well controlled by the use of protective creams.
