Abstract
Employee exposures to fibrous glass, acetone (67641) and styrene (100425) vapor are not found toxic in the amounts detected in a factory manufacturing fibrous glass containers, but a potential for employees to be overexposed to styrene vapor is found to exist in the spin cast molding area. Recommendations include improvement of ventilation system, usage of NIOSH approved respirators and filters in the chopping, hand molding, and fiber glass sanding areas, and a follow up industrial hygiene survey soon after ventilation installation.
