Abstract
A Health Hazard Evaluation investigation was conducted by NIOSH on September 2, 1977, at the DAP Derusto plant, in Tipp City, Ohio, a facility involved mainly in the manufacture of paints (SIC-2851) and to a lesser extent with other coatings, glues and cleaners. The survey was prompted by a request from an authorized representative of the approximately 50 affected employees regarding exposure to solvents, dusts and ammonia (7664417). Environmental sampling revealed that the levels of mineral spirits, xylene (1330207), toluene (108883), cellosolve acetate (111159), ammonia, methylene- chloride (75092), and nuisance dust did not exceed recommended criteria on an 8 hour time weighted average concentration basis within the worksite area. However, results of employee interviews indicate that employees experience symptoms which can be associated with solvent exposures. Ventilation studies revealed little air movement in several locations. On the basis of employee health complaints, it is recommended that local ventilation be installed in these areas.
