Abstract
Evaluation of hazards from exposure to acetone (67641), carbon- monoxide (630080), methyl-chloroform (71556), mineral spirits, toluene (108883), and xylene (108383), and also from paint dust, synthetic and cleaned cotton fibers, and fiberglass. Data are given for the toxic effects and standard concentration of the chemicals, and the respirable fractions for inert or nuisance dusts. Results indicate that the chemicals are not toxic and the nuisance dust levels not hazardous in the amounts used in the automotive company surveyed. Recommendations include installation of local exhaust ventilation, and dilute ventilation in specific areas, supply of fresh air to the toe-in pits in assembly lines, improved housekeeping, respirators for painters, provision of a maintenance program to control vapors, mists and gases, and environmental monitoring in areas where employees are significantly exposed to carbon-monoxide, including blood analysis for carboxyhemoglobin.
