Abstract
Based on the results of the environmental and medical data relating to the working areas and workers in a steel company in respect of carbon-monoxide (630080), cadmium (7440439) and nuisance dust, potentially toxic conditions are found in the annealing furnace, welding shop, and hand scarfing, pipe shop, and open hearth areas of the company. No hazard is found from exposure to trichloroethylene (79016) in the armature area, but a definite hazard is believed to exist at times with welders, as evidenced by cases of metal fume fever.
