Abstract
Breathing zone air sample tests and medical interviews were conducted on April 25, 1979 at the Redfield Division of Outdoor Sports Ind., (SIC-3949) Denver, Colorado to determine exposure levels of cutting oil mist. The evaluation was requested by company management in response to complaints of machinists and other personnel of dermatitis and upper respiratory irritation. Breathing zone concentrations of oil mist ranged from 0.01 to 3.1 milligrams per cubic meter of air (mg/cu m), which are below the OSHA standards of 5 mg/cu m. It is concluded that no hazard existed at the time of this evaluation, and that worker complaints were not attributable to cutting oil. Showering after work to eliminate dermatitis, workplace hygiene, and education of employees on the hazards of cutting oils are recommended.
