Abstract
Four fluorocarbon facilities were surveyed to determine worker exposure to the fluorocarbons and to document existing engineering controls, work practices, administrative controls, biological and environmental sampling, requirements and control procedures currently used by companies. Personal and area air samples were collected at each facility. Results indicate that time weighted average exposures for normal operations were less the current permissible levels. Recommendations include: continued maintenance of present control measures; routine measurements of job areas and worker exposures; employee education regarding occupational hazards and use of personal protective equipment; application of ventilation as a control measure; and efforts to prevent exposure of females of child bearing age to fluorocarbons.
