Abstract
A survey was conducted at Electrocal, Division of Bristol Brass Corporation, South Windsor, Connecticut, on November 1, 1973, for the purpose of identifying present and past work practices concerning the use of methyl-butyl-ketone (591786) and other raw materials used, taking air samples, and correlating the environmental data with medical findings on exposed workers. At this plant decals are printed on a release-coated laminated paper by a stainless steel screening process (SIC-2751). Environmental measurements did not indicate employee exposures to organic vapors in excess of OSHA standards; however, the potential for standards violations does exist. Ventilation and work practice improvements are recommended. An employee diagnosed as having peripheral neuropathy was examined, but there is not sufficient evidence to indicate that this is the same syndrome suffered by employees of a coated fabric facility.
