Abstract
During 1963, the industrial hygiene activities in Montana were evaluated. This evaluation included: surveys of 224 industrial establishments, reviews of the operational records of the State Board of Health Industrial Hygiene unit, and the Montana Industrial Accident Board, studies of population and employment trends, and consideration of the industrial hygiene activities of private and official groups. Atmospheric samples showed that in many establishments the concentrations of toxic materials exceeded the threshold limit values. High noise levels were found in all lumber mills where measurements were made. Findings indicate that there is a need for better communication of industrial hygiene information to industry and an increased effort to control exposures to hazardous materials and harmful physical conditions.
