Abstract
It has been determined that painters and painters' helpers are not exposed to toxic concentrations of paint and paint solvents (potentially toxic components of which are xylene (1330207), benzene (71432), and lead (7439921)) from the two airless spray paint operations conducted in the fabrication building and the one dip painting operation conducted in the paint shed of a heavy scale manufacturing plant (SIC-1721). This determination is based on environmental evaluation conducted by NIOSH, lack of adverse medical symptomatology, and toxicity information on those substances of concern. Recommendations are made to improve current work practices.
