Abstract
Evaluation of a diesel locomotive fabrication plant (SIC-3519) reveals that odors generated by bacterial breakdown of soluble oil used as a coolant are not toxic but may cause nausea. A potentially hazardous situation exists from the inhalation of dust from a polyester resin during removal of the dust by compressed air. Recommendations include eliminating the procedure for compressed air removal of dust.
