Abstract
Environmental survey of waste treatment plant indicating that the levels of substances investigated are not toxic at concentrations found in the worker's environment during normal operations, but are potentially toxic and may result in acute exposures to employees during improper maintenance operations and accidental leaks. Data are given for levels of sulfuric-acid (7664939), chlorine (7782505), sodium-hydroxide (1310732), ferrous-sulfate (7720787), calcium- hydroxide (1305620), acrylic-acid (79107) resin or polyamide- polymer, ferric-chloride (7705080), Fuller's earth (8031183), and respirable and total inert dusts and nuisance dusts. Conclusions are based on past acid and caustic burns to employees, and eye, nose, and throat irritation to employees and NIOSH investigators due to chlorine (7782505) leakage. Recommendations include: institution and improvement of operational engineering and maintenance procedures, housekeeping programs, safety practices, and health and safety policies, procedures, and programs, including use of respiratory protection, chemical goggles, buddy system, lock and tag system, and acid-caustic gloves.
