Abstract
Worker exposures to N-nitroso compounds were evaluated at B. F. Goodrich Company (SIC-3011), Woodburn, Indiana on December 12, 1979. Personal and area air samples were collected and analyzed by gas chromotography and thermal energy analysis methods. All of the samples contained N-nitrosomorpholine (59892) (NMOR) and five samples also contained N-nitrosodimethylamine (62759) (NDMA). The amount of NMOR ranged from 0.85 to 3.7 micrograms per cubic meter (micrograms/m3) for area air samples and 0.63 to 1.8 micrograms/m3 for personal samples. NDMA concentrations ranged from undetectable to 1.8 microgram/m3 for area samples and undetectable to 0.09 micrograms/m3 for personal samples. The authors note that no exposure standards exist for NDMA or NMOR but both are listed as potential human carcinogens. They suggest that the B. F. Goodrich Company characterize nitrosamine exposures at this facility.
