Abstract
A Health Hazard Evaluation investigation was conducted by NIOSH on September 10, 1974 and March 9, 1976, at the Calhio Chemicals, Inc., Perry, Ohio, a facility engaged in the manufacturing of Folpet (133073) and Captan (133062) (SIC-2819). The survey was prompted by a request from a representative of at least 24 affected employees, regarding exposure to perchloromethyl-mercaptan (75707) and the sudden death of a 35 year old employee. Environmental sampling and medical evaluation failed to produce evidence of excessive incidence of chronic disease which could be associated with any of the substances in use including perchloromethyl-mercaptan. However, subjective evidence of transient irritation associated with perchloromethyl-mercaptan during the first plant visit and with Captan dust, chlorine (7782505), and imide dust during the follow-up visit was found. Recommendations are made for improved ventilation, pre-employment medical examination and use of respirators.
