Abstract
Environmental and personal air samples were analyzed for the presence of ozone (10028156), fluorides, nitrogen-dioxide (10102440), iron-oxide (1309371), manganese (7439965), chromium (7440473), total fume, naphtha (8030306), isobutyl-isobutyrate (97858), methyl-n-butyl ketone (591786), isobutyl-acetate (110190), isobutyl-alcohol (78831), toluene (108883), xylene (1330207), hydrochloric-acid (7647010), hexavalent-chromium (7440473), cadmium (7440439), cyanide (57125), 1,1,1-trichloroethane (71556), and asbestos (1332214) at the Cissell Manufacturing Company in Louisville, Kentucky, a manufacturer of laundry and dry cleaning space equipment and pressing machines for commercial and industrial use (SIC-3582), during July 1978 and January 1979. An evaluation request came from an authorized representative of an unspecified number of employees. Only concentrations of asbestos, ranging from exposure limit of 0.1 fibers per cubic centimeter. Inadequate ventilation and work practices also were noted. The authors conclude that a potential health hazard did exist for workers exposed to asbestos. They recommend measures to reduce employee asbestos exposures, improve exhaust ventilation and institute better work practices.
