Abstract
Environmental and medical evaluations in the forming and selecting departments of a glass plant reveal concentrations of hydrogen- chloride (7647010), sulfur-dioxide (7446095), and tin-tetrachloride (7646788) are not toxic. Sulfur-dioxide is found to cause temporary eye irritation in several employees, and airborne powdered glass dust causes dermatitis. Recommendations are made for the substitution of graphite (7782425) compounds for sulfur (7704349) as a mold lubricant and temperature stabilizer, use of a water wash to prevent glass powder from becoming airborne, improved maintenance of ventilation systems, and use of hearing protective equipment in noisy areas.
