Abstract
Mercury (7439976) vapor concentrations, lack of engineering controls, personal protective equipment, work practices, medical questionnaires, physical examinations and multiple urine mercury examinations, lead to the conclusion that employees at a thermometer fabrication and assembly facility (SIC-3829) were exposed to toxic concentrations of inorganic mercury resulting in systemic absorption of the metal. Furthermore, the urinary mercury levels for symptomatic workers were significantly higher than the levels found in asymptomatic workers. A follow up survey showed that environmental conditions at the plant have changed considerably as a result of recommendations instituted after the completion of the initial survey.
