Abstract
Environmental measurements in the work place, employee interviews, and analysis of the working conditions at a facility producing mass paintings for consumers reveals that the concentrations of methyl ethyl ketone (78933), toluene (108883), n-butyl acetate (123864), isopropyl alcohol (67630), and xylene (1330207) during normal operating conditions are not toxic. Recommendations are made that only organic vapor respirators be used in the plant, together with the establishment of a respirator maintenance program.
