Abstract
An environmental survey was performed in the Fiber Cutting Department (SIC-2621) and in the digester feeding area of the Digesting Department to evaluate airborne concentrations of flax dust to which workers were exposed. A concurrent medical survey was conducted of the employees of the same two areas to evaluate any adverse health effects of exposure to flax dust. On the basis of this environmental/medical survey it has been determined that the airborne concentrations of flax dust which existed at that time would, without respiratory protection, be toxic to the employees of the Fiber Cutting Department.
