Abstract
A health hazard evaluation determination performed at a cutlery manufacturing plant (SIC-3421) revealed that employees at the hafting operation are exposed to concentrations of wood, cowhide and aluminum (1344281) oxide dusts in excess of the recommended levels of nuisance dust. The suspected relationship of wood dust and leather dust to excess nasal cancer mandates reduction of exposure to minimal or zero levels. Exposures to airborne concentrations of trichloroethylene (79016), perchloroethylene (127184), paint solvent consisting of toluene (108883), isobutyl-acetate (123864) and butyl- cellosolve (111762), toluolisopropanol and oil mists were found to be below the acceptable concentrations.
