Abstract
Health hazard evaluation in a printing company shows that trichloroethylene (79016) is not toxic in the amounts used in paper splicing operations but that paper dust exposures create mild irritation in employees with allergic disorders. Exposures to "press oven smoke" result in episodes of minor, transient, irritative symptoms. Safety recommendations include installation of local exhaust ventilation at press slitter knives, and sweeping of settled dust on catwalks into refuse containers for reducing transfer of dust to adjacent presses.
