Abstract
Environmental and bulk sampling was conducted and medical questionnaires were administered to workers in the orbit module area of Continental Plastic Containers (SIC-3070), in Springdale, Ohio on November 8, 1979, March 30 and April 7, 1980. An evaluation request came from the president of the Local 127 Glass Bottle Blowers Association on behalf of an unspecified number workers. The environmental samples contained 0.72 to 0.90 milligrams per cubic meter (mg/m3) of formaldehyde (50000), well below the OSHA standard of 3.7 mg/m3. Concentrations of acetaldehyde (75070), phenol (108952), valeraldehyde (110623), and aniline (62533) were below the recommended limits. The authors conclude that no health hazard existed. They recommend that module operators use goggles to reduce eye irritation and that the module discharge chutes be enclosed to reduce the amount of silicone mist.
