Abstract
Environmental sampling and medical interviews were conducted on May 10, June 20, and August 1, 1979, at Bertoia Studio (SIC-1799) in Bally, Pennsylvania, to determine employee exposures to beryllium (7440417) dust, cadmium (7440439) fumes, and soluble fluorides. The evaluation request came from the management on behalf of an unspecified number of employees. Samples for the three test compounds were below the limits of detection, and below the current OSHA 8 hour time weighted average standards of 2 micrograms per cubic meter (/m3) for beryllium dust, 0.1 milligrams (mg)/m3 for cadmium fumes, and 2.5mg/m3 for fluorides. The authors conclude that no hazardous exposures were identified. The use of safety glasses and disposable protective clothing was recommended, along with improved personal hygiene habits.
