Abstract
Environmental survey and medical evaluation of workers in production of reinforced plastics, indicating potentially hazardous exposures to acetone (67641), dimethyl aniline, isobutyl alcohol (78831), isopropyl alcohol (67630), normal butyl acetate (123864), methyl cellosolve (109864), methyl ethyl ketone (78933), methyl isobutyl ketone (108101), methylene chloride (75092), styrene (100425), toluene (108883), xylene (1330207), fiberglass dust, and nuisance dusts. Complaints of workers include headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, generalized weakness, chronic fatigue, and skin, nasal, conjuctival and pharyngeal mucosa irritation. Citations and recommendations for improvement are made for local ventilation and general ventilation, safety orientation and training, workplace monitoring, use of respirators, protective clothing, housekeeping and sanitation, safety equipment maintenance, eye protection, warning labels, and health capabilities of the establishment. Toxic properties, chemical properties, and physical properties are given with threshold values for the cited substances.
