Abstract
Environmental and medical evaluations of a foundry manufacturing gray iron (7439896) castings reveal toxic levels of silica (7631869), potentially toxic levels of iron oxide (1317619), and irritant toxicity of ammonia (7664417), formaldehyde (50000), and phenol (108952). Carbon-monoxide (630080), toluene (108883), and xylene (1330207) are not found in toxic concentrations. Recommendations include engineering control of silica levels, including improved ventilation; improved housekeeping; medical surveillance program for prevention of silicosis; safety education programs; and improved ventilation systems in areas containing respiratory irritants.
