Abstract
Air samples were analyzed for toxic concentrations of oil-mist, iron- oxide, 1,1,1-trichloroethane (71556), and nitrite (1594565), at the Gardner Denver Company, Commerce City, Colorado, on October 17 and 18, 1978. A representative of the United Steelworkers of America requested the evaluation of behalf of the approximately 200 affected employees. Oil mist concentrations in the drop forge work area exceeded the current OSHA standard of 5 milligrams per cubic meter. All other worker exposures were well within evaluation criteria for other potentially toxic substances. The author recommends that appropriate respirators be used, that hygienic eating places for workers be provided, that auditory protective equipment be used among workers in the drop forge area, and that local exhaust ventilation be stalled in the drop forge area.
