Abstract
A Health Hazard Evaluation investigation was conducted by NIOSH on March 23-24, 1976, at The Wood Shed, a furniture stripping and refinishing shop (SIC-7641) in Belle Mead, New Jersey. The survey was prompted by a request from the employer to evaluate potential hazards to the 2 affected employees in the furniture stripping ad refinishing operations. Breathing zone and general area air samples were taken to determine exposure to xylene (1330207) and dimethylformamide (68122), and medical records were reviewed. The results revealed that the employees were not exposed to harmful concentrations of solvents. It is recommended that the current practice of respirator use be continued during periods of potential exposure.
