Abstract
Environmental surveys and employee interviews conducted at the Converse Rubber Company (SIC-3021) indicate that compounders in the doubling room are exposed to excessive concentrations of airborne particulates and that brief periodic exposures to higher concentrations of zinc (7440666) stearate may produce irritation of the upper respiratory tract. Ammonia (7664417) concentrations measured are also determined to be capable of producing sensory irritation.
