Abstract
An industrial hygiene survey was conducted at a facility engaged in the production of insulation products (SIC-3296), with emphasis on air sampling for small diameter fibrous glass. The findings show significant exposure to respirable glass fibers in the insulation operation. Measurements will also taken for noise levels. Recommendations are made that respirable glass fibers be kept at an absolute minimum by the use of good work practices and engineering controls. Workers handling bulk glass mat should wear respiratory protection. The use of some asbestos containing material warrants close medical surveillance. Addition of silencers and ear protectors should reduce the high noise levels recorded at 2 spot welding machines and at an abrasive cutoff saw.
