Abstract
An information profile on the potential occupational hazards in the photographic processing industry (SIC-7395, SIC-7819) is presented. Black and white film development involves fixation, printing, print development, and fixing processes. Color film processes include negative development, bleaching, fixing/washing/drying, color printing, and color transparency production. These processes and the materials used in the processing are described. Physical and chemical hazards, photographic chemicals, number of workers, trends in film processing techniques and industrial health and safety statistics are discussed. The biochemical effects of human acute and chronic exposures to specific chemicals are described. The results of an earlier health hazard evaluation are briefly summarized and pertinent threshold limit values are presented.
