Abstract
An investigation to evaluate the exposures to aluminum-oxide (1344281) and other oil mist produced by hot wire cutting of polypropylene (9003070) webbing (SIC-3944) has been made. The subject manufacturer makes backpacks for carrying infants, folding baby strollers, and folding baby beds. These items are made from tubular aluminum and polypropylene webbing. During this evaluation, workers that were monitored included those working in cutting, sewing, riveting and handling the aluminum tubing. All workers were monitored in the areas where the aluminum tubing was being sewed, cut, riveted, and handled. Sound level measurements were taken throughout this area. Each worker was interviewed, and questions were directed at work history and specific medical complaints. All breathing zone air samples were collected on filters using vacuum pumps operated at 1.5 liters per minute. A health hazard did not exist from either aluminum-oxide or oil mist at the time of the evaluation. High noise levels were observed in numerous areas of the factory.
