Abstract
An information profile on the potential occupational hazards in the manufacture of synthetic rubber (SIC-282) is presented. Process descriptions, relevant chemical and physical agents, the number of workers exposed and employed, biologic effects of agents encountered, and existing exposure standards are included. Incidence of mortality, injury, and morbidity is given. NIOSH Health Hazard Evaluations pertinent to the industry are reviewed. The authors conclude that the greatest physical danger is that of fire and explosion due to raw materials, and the chief chemical hazard is that of exposure to the monomers during the handling and transferring periods of the polymerization processes.
