NIOSH 1975 Apr; :1-13
Health hazard evaluation in an ink company based on environmental measurements in the workplace and medical interviews with employees shows that vapors of ethyl acetate, isopropyl acetate, ethanol, n- propyl acetate, n-propyl alcohol, n-heptane, isopropanol, toluene and lead, chromium, titanium dioxide and inert dust are not highly toxic to workmen, but that in the concentrations used, most of the chemicals cause minor symptoms. Measures to control exposure include relocation of the solvent pumps outside the building, supply of NIOSH approved respirators to maintenance men, covering of all solvent containers, good housekeeping and improvement in ventilation.
